Training Course on Eco-Industrial Clusters

December 2-4 2013, Tokyo, Japan

As economic competition increases across Asia and the Pacific, policy makers are searching for ways to create new industrial clusters, sustain existing ones, and revive those that are losing vigour. However, many sustainability issues challenge this and are only inclined to intensify as industrial areas grow.

In response to this dilemma, the Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI), with the support of CITYNET and Kawasaki City, will host a three day training course for mayors and senior government officials on the concepts and practicalities of transforming industrial clusters into successful eco-friendly economic zones. The program, through technical presentations, field visits and group discussions, will improve the capacity of policy makers to deliver integrated environmental and economic planning in their respective jurisdictions.

Course Dates: December 2nd – 4th 2013 (3 days)
Location: Tokyo, Japan
Target Participants: Mayors and senior government officials from the ministries or departments of environment, industry, trade, commerce and other directly related sectors.

Application Deadline: Monday 28th October – 18:00 Korea Standard Time (KST)
