From Green Infrastructure to
Green Economy

03 October 2024

The 10th International Conference on Sustainable Urban Development

from green infrastructure to green economy

We learned about green infrastructure to benefit the economy in many ways. Investment in green infrastructure can yield higher economic growth compared to traditional infrastructure investments. Green infrastructure promotes sustainability, innovation, and efficiency that leads to increased productivity (energy-efficient buildings, lower business costs). Besides, it may create innovative jobs across various sectors and opportunities to invest in green infrastructure (energy, transportation, waste, and water management conservation) would spur economic growth. Moreover, green and blue infrastructure would enhance public health, improve climate change resiliency, and reduce potential damage to the economy.

However, there are barriers to protecting and building our green infrastructure and transforming the existing economy. Given the fact that our green and blue infrastructure are degrading, and depleting, and given that we are working with economic, technical, social, and institutional barriers. Therefore, we want to learn the lessons of innovations, knowledge, and skills to build and manage green infrastructure that best support green economy transformation.

We cordially invite you to the international conference on “FROM GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE TO GREEN ECONOMY this October 2024. This is the Tenth annual international conference sponsored by the Sustainable Urban Development Program (SUD) at the Vietnamese-German University (VGU). The agenda this year centers on understanding how to build/protect and make green infrastructure to mutually benefit the green economy transformation. Key discussion topics could include understanding the issues and learning innovative approaches and solutions to make it happen on both urban and regional scales.

Come to join us on October 3rd, 2024, to share and learn together.
