Flood Modelling Group Report, by the Vietnam Institute of Meteorology, Hydrology and Climate Change (IMHEN): A simulation of the historical flooding in Hanoi in 2008, generating flood maps under different climate scenarios, and considering a range of mitigation measures carried out to improve Hanoi’s drainage system, using MIKE URBAN software.

Social, Economic and Environmental Impact Assessment:  In support of the optimisation modelling process, the assessment demonstrates how the impacts of flooding in Hanoi are felt primarily along the city’s road systems, by residents and by visiting traders, with disproportionate impact on women.

Stakeholder Analysis: The analysis maps government agencies and other institutions with influence on, or interest in, optimizing investment strategies for flood mitigation on the road system in Hanoi.

Literature Review: The review considers existing background documentation about flood risk management projects in similar circumstances in Vietnam, existing tools and methods for optimizing investments, and existing literature on Operational Research methods relevant to this research.
