Chengdu "BRIDGE for Cities" Roadshow
The Chengdu "BRIDGE for Cities" Roadshow was held in Chengdu, China on 29 August 2018. The Roadshow has been organized in close cooperation with the National Development and Reform Commission of China and with the Chengdu Municipal People's Government.
The Roadshow focused on the concept of "Park City" and on how the principles of Green Economy, like the support for waste recycling, sustainable industry and urban agriculture, will contribute to the liveability of modern cities. Chengdu was selected to be one of the cities for case studies, because of its experience and achievements in the field of ecological transformation. Chengdu can therefore help in identifying the steps necessary to balance industrial development and environmental protection, and how to balance rapid urbanization and improvement of urban residents' living standards.
The debate was enriched by the presence of international economic and financial experts; representatives from Chengdu municipality; diplomatic envoys and UNIDO experts and was followed by a series of study tours in Chengdu Jinjjiang Green Park and in Guixu Ecological Park.
