The sustainable urban development programme (SUDP) consists of three components from which the ARGE GOPA/AS&P implemented the “urban ideas factory” (UIF). By supporting cities in introducing and implementing sustainable urban development approaches, the programme was a contribution to the attainment of the goals of the 11th five year plan of China.
The target group was the population of participating cities in China. The implemented measures should provide a healthier environment and an increase in quality of life as a result of improved services.
The UIF team provided advice on the strategy, method and implementation of sustainable urban development approaches to six selected cities: Baise, Foshan, Huairou, Huainan, Kunming, Shouguang.
Per city, one model project has been selected. The projects covered a wide range of issues: cautious old city rehabilitation with participative approach, holistic & inter-sector concepts, energy saving / low carbon construction, sustainable transportation, urban waterfront development, redevelopment of industrial and mining brownfields, eco-industrial parks, planning procedures and communal finance.
GOPA collaborated with AS&P Shanghai Ltd. on this project.
