A new world deserves new solutions

The Asian Century is here.

Our cities are booming, populations are growing, and rapid economic development is transforming the region. It’s the dawn of a new era, and a chance to get sustainable development right. But as cities fill up with people in search of brighter futures and better livelihoods, we need solutions to ensure that cities are green, clean, resilient and cool. In short, cities that are liveable.

The Liveability Challenge aims to close the financing gap between the ideas that will make our cities better and the investments that will make these solutions a reality.

Following a successful two-month global call for innovative, ground-breaking solutions in waste management and cooling, over 200 applications from 34 countries around the world were filed and the six most promising ones selected.
