Description: 

The GDP growth rate of Da Nang for the period 2002-2012 was 12.53%, making it one of the fastest growing cities in Viet Nam. Urbanization and industrialization over the past decade have decreased the land use area for forestry and agriculture. Natural disasters that struck Da Nang in the past have also caused destruction and uprooting of trees and vegetation, and aggravated soil erosion.
