Wei Yang & Partners advise Asian Development Bank on urban regeneration projects in Cambodia and Viet Nam
20 Feb 2015
Numerous towns in the Greater Mekong Sub-region have severe capacity problems on their existing infrastructure and public services, which cannot cope with the increasing demands of the growing local population and new developments. The capacity constraints in providing adequate potable water supply, sanitation, drainage and flood control, and solid waste management services have resulted severe environmental problems. The lack of integrated land use planning, urban design and conservation skills, as well as enforcement regimes, further undermined the sustainable growth of these places.
The objective of Asian Development Bank projects is to develop and/or upgrade public services in the small and medium towns along the corridors, and strengthen the capacities of these towns to manage future development in a sustainable way, environmentally, economically and socially.
Wei Yang & Partners will provide area-based conservation and enhancement strategies for Kampot in Cambodia and Sa Pa in Viet Nam, to provide opportunities to enhance the economic and environmental assets of the two historical towns.
