ADB Key Indicators for Asia and the Pacific 2012: Green Urbanization (Dissemination Event)

Event | 21 August 2012 ADBI, Tokyo, Japan

The special chapter of ADB's Key Indicators for Asia and the Pacific 2012 examines in detail the challenges and opportunities presented by the region's breakneck urban boom. It will discuss how can Asia act decisively to pave the way for green, resource-friendly cities as well as argue the possible role that contributory factors to urban agglomeration, viz., rising educational attainments, growth of the middle class and declining birth rates can play in helping improve the environment, if properly managed.
