Located in Central Vietnam, Hue is the sixth largest city after Ho Chi Minh, Ha Noi, Hai Phong, Da Nang and Bien Hoa cities. An urban development plan designed to turn Hue into a metropolis is being implemented, raising expectations of its further population growth in the future. The national census conducted in 2009 shows that the total population of Hue City was 337,506 in 2009 and increased to approximately 339,000 in 2010. The population density has been increasing year by year due to the increase of Hue City’s population. Tourism is considered as the most important economic sector of Hue City, but it has been facing some challenges.

This report, An Inventory of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Tourism related activities in Hue city, Vietnam, is made to briefly introduce some general information of Hue City and to provide an inventory of GHG emissions of Hue’s tourism related activities in 2011. To the latter end, fifty entities of different scales, which are engaged in tourism, have been selected for the data collection with structured questionnaires and face – to – face interviews.
