Can Tho Spatial Information Strategy 2020
Can Tho faces many complex and interrelated social, economic and environmental challenges at both a local and regional level. Can Tho City, in particular, is vulnerable to climate change and hydro-meteorological disasters, and uncontrolled urbanisation. New decision-making tools are required to better understand these challenges and plan for the future needs of the community. It is currently difficult for the City to keep up with demands for infrastructure, such as roads, drainage and sanitation, and the increasing threat of flooding. There are a growing number of government, business and academic organisations that collect spatial information, and technology has advanced considerably in recent years. There is now a significant opportunity to use this information and computing power for evidenced-based policy setting and integrated and transparent government services.
