Theme: Sharing Korea’s experience and knowledge in national territorial policy responding to climate change and its application to participating countries
Date: July 6 - 22, 2017
Venue: Conference Room(3F), KRIHS

 


 

With 20 participants from 5 Asian countries including Laos, Mongolia, Myanmar, Vietnam and Sri Lanka, the Global Development Partnership Center (GDPC) of KRIHS (Korea Research Institute for Human Settlements) conducted a program, “2017 KRIHS-KOICA National Territorial Policy Responding to Climate Change” from July 6 to 22 in KRIHS.

 

As it was the second of the three-year long KOICA (Korea International Cooperation Agency) program, it provided expert lectures on Korea’s national territorial policy responding to climate change, urban resilience, green technology, infrastructure, water resources and other sectors. Also site visits relevant to the lectures were included such as Sejong City Integrated Information Center, Sejong City Lake Park Water Purification Facility, Hongcheon Eco-Friendly Renewable Energy Town, Han River Flood Control Office and Gangnam Resource Recovery Facility.

 

The participants would discuss various topics: management and early warning system for disasters including landslide and flood, management and treatment of solid waste, management of urban slum areas, public housing policy in undeveloped and vulnerable areas, infrastructure development and masterplan responding to climate change. Then they will explore final action plans which will fit to their issues and measures to apply them to current situation of each country.

 

At the opening ceremony on July, 10 (Mon), the president of KRIHS, Dongju Kim expected that this program would be considered meaningful to the participants’ countries to find implications on national territorial policies responding to climate change from Korea’s experience, knowledge and limitations, and ways of mutual cooperation for development to both KRIHS and the participants’ countries.
