Cao Lanh Bridge Impact Evaluation – Midline Survey


Since 2011, with funding support from the Government of Australia, the Government of South Korea and Asian Development Bank, the Government of Vietnam has implemented the Central Mekong Delta Connectivity Project (CMDP) to enhance transport mobility in the Mekong Delta Region and provide improved access from Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) to the Southern Coastal Region. The Project has three main components:

Component 1: the Cao Lanh Bridge (2.0 kms) and approach roads (5.4 kms)
Component 2: the interconnecting road (15.7 kms)
Component 3: the Vam Cong Bridge (2.97 kms) and approach roads (4.08 kms)
To evaluate the Cao Lanh Bridge project’s socio-economic impacts on beneficiaries in the target area, DFAT commissioned Adam Smith International (ASI) and the Mekong Development Research Institute (MDRI) to carry out the assignment. Specifically, the impact evaluation is designed to test the primary hypothesis that the CLBP will generate accessibility and mobility improvements that lead to wider socio-economic development benefits within and among the three provinces (Dong Thap – An Giang – Can Tho).

Main tasks:

Develop detailed methodology
Design tools
Conduct fieldwork
Analyze indicators and prepare report
