This publication presents the results of the IRA, which was completed based on available scientific information on the marine and coastal resources and environment of Danang City. Priority environmental concerns for management actions were identified, including data gaps and uncertainties that need to be addressed through comprehensive environmental monitoring program. Recommendations were also drawn up focusing on the best management options that would address the identified risks. In this study, environmental risk assessment was carried out for Danang City's coastal zone which covers six districts: Hai Chau, Thanh Khe, Hoa Vang, Ngu Hanh Son, Lien Chieu and Son Tra, which include watersheds draining to Danang coastal zone from surface water areas such as lakes and rivers — headwaters of rivers from the mountains and hilly areas in Danang City. The contiguous boundaries of the coastal zone including Quang Nam province and Hue City were also assessed in this report.
