Surface water sources in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) are being exploited for various purposes such as water supply for daily life, industry and services ; irrigation, animal husbandry, aquaculture ; navigation, environmental landscaping, waste reception and assimilation, etc. Each of these uses has its own benefits and values.

This paper presents an overview of the economic value of water resources and the economic valuation of some of the typical value types used in HCMC by 2016, including use for living, industrial, service, irrigation, transportation and environmental landscape.
