Environmental Sustainable Development in Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta
September 3, 2015 - 15:00-17:00
CBCI lecture by Dr. Gleen Frommer
The Pearl River Delta in South China has seen phenomenal growth over the last decades and with that, significant environmental impacts. Air and water quality have deteriorated, noise increased, and the provision of secure sources of food and treating waste have been tested. Hong Kong has been one of the major drivers for the growth of the PRD and in doing so has also provided some interesting role models.
Dr Frommer will outline the environmental issues for both Hong Kong and the PRD and discuss the challenges, the relevant policies, legislation and the current state of the environment. He will focus on the provision and funding of public transportation in Hong Kong, the Rail and Property model, and discuss how this model could apply to the PRD and other jurisdictions.
