Institutions and entities involved in the GreenCityLabHue project can be divided into three groups (extended project consortium, Vietnamese project partners and information partners) regarding the intensity of their involvement and their responsibilities in the project.
The extended project consortium consists of the Geography Department of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HUB), the Independent Institute for Environmental Issues (UfU) from Berlin and the Mientrung Institute for Scientific Research (MISR) from Hue, Vietnam, which is sub-contracted. The project consortium is responsible for the implementation of the WPs, whereby the associated partners perform different tasks. Further Vietnamese project partners such as the DONRE (Regional Environmental Authority) of Thua Thien Hue Province, the DPI (Department of Planning and Investment), the Department for Climate Change of Hue University of Agriculture and Forestry (HUAF) and the Faculty of Architecture of Hue University of Science (HUSC) are directly linked to the GreenCityLabHue project. They participate in project workshops and the major project meetings in Hue., Besides other stakeholders, they serve as interview partners and are responsible for the collection of data onsite. They support the project with their data, knowledge and development visions to the central project database, and also have direct access to it. Furthermore, information partners are persons and organisations with important influence and knowledge on local urban development. They contribute to the development of the database by sharing their ideas, information and visions without being direct project partners.

Within the collaborative research project, UfU leads the work package on the creating of a public information and learning space, the so called “Green City Lab” as well as the design, the conduction and evaluation of stakeholder interviews. In addition, UfU focuses on the involvement of suitable individuals and stakeholder from civil society, scientific institutions, politics and administration in Vietnam and the internal and external communication with the project partners and the public in Germany and Vietnam. Moreover, the coordination and supervision of the project activities and events are among the UfU tasks.

Besides the scientific monitoring, HUB, as a specialist for land use modelling, GBI and NBS, takes lead in the work package dedicated towards the development of stakeholder-based narratives and visions regarding GBI and the modelling of land use change scenarios based on the narratives. The objective of the definition phase is to develop knowledge-intensive narratives in collaboration with local stakeholders, experts and practitioners, taking into account the inventory of natural urban spaces and their potential for GBI, the findings of the stakeholder interviews and achieving a number of targets for previously defined goals (climate change adaptation, health, flooding etc.). Then to translate the narratives into computational rules (codes) for modelling land use change in GIS and to simulate land use change in a test scenario and to generate maps to visualise changes. Additionally, HUB illustrates benefits of GBI and NBS, particularly with climate change adaptation and flooding. This includes the presentation of case studies in which GBI and NBS have been successfully implemented, and the integration of measures to establish GBI and NBS into the development of stakeholder-based narratives, to demonstrate their positive effects.
