This paper presents concepts important for understanding the potential of sustainable low-income housing in Vietnam,
with a focus on key environmental, socio-economic, and cultural dimensions that bear on its housing sector. It examines
challenges for sustainable urban development in Hanoi and HCMC, Vietnam's two main cities. Recognising the
current challenges in balancing affordability and sustainability, the study explores Vietnam's lack of adequate and
affordable housing and the problem of its urban slums. Synergistic strategies suitable for the Vietnamese context are
then suggested for sustainable low-income housing in these two cities.
Keywords : Vietnam, Low-Income Housing, Sustainability, Neoliberal Urbanism.
