Green Urbanization in AsiaAugust 29 | 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM (add to my calendar)
This presentation will discuss policies that can help reduce the environmental impact of urbanization in Asia through urban agglomeration. Urbanization can promote development of the less-polluting service sector; prompt traditional manufacturers to relocate away from major city centers; economize provisions of environment-related infrastructure and services; contribute to higher labor productivity; and facilitate green innovation. Rising educational attainments, the growth of the middle class and declining birth rates typically associated with urbanization can also have broadly beneficial impacts on resource use and the environment.
