Sustainable Urbanisation

The EU has considerable experience in promoting and delivering ‘smart’ urban growth and 2020 will see the launch of the €5 million Smart Green ASEAN Cities initiative, which aims to support sustainable urbanisation in the ASEAN region, reduce the environmental impacts of urban areas, and improve the quality of life of citizens. The initiative will combine city level solutions with national capacity building and regional approaches, such as the ASEAN Smart City Network, which supports green and smart city solutions in selected ASEAN cities. An integral element will be the increased exchange of proven environmentally-sound city management practices between the EU and ASEAN.
