The City which is home to 926,000 people is known for its impressive mountains, yellow sand beaches, rare animal species and historical structures/sites.
Danang City is one of the 11 demonstration sites for ICM under the Partnerships in Environmental Management for the Seas of East Asia (PEMSEA).
As one of Vietnam's national economic growth centers, Danang has been subjected to various environmental issues and concerns. Striking a balance between economic development and environmental protection has been difficult, but through ICM and concerted efforts, Danang City is now working towards becoming a full-fledged Environmental City.
