2nd Greater Mekong Sub-region Corridor Towns Development Project

Working through Groupe Huit, our principal partner Keith Perry has recently completed another keynote feasibility study for the Asian Development Bank, for which he acted as Team Leader. The project included:

  • Integrated Urban and Environment Management;
  • Green City Planning;
  • Urban Conservation and Enhancement;
  • Eco Tourism and Conservation;
  • Sustainable Solid Waste Management Planning;
  • Integrated Urban Infrastructure;
  • Social Development and Poverty Reduction; and
  • Capacity Building and Training.

The feasibility study was set within the context of economic progress for the Greater Mekong Subregion and included seven corridor towns, spread across Cambodia, Lao PDR and Viet Nam. The feasibility study adopted ADB’s “Green City Agenda” which is based around the three key principles of Economy-Equity-Environment and which were applied to: (i) the development of Strategic Local Economic Development Plans for each of the seven towns. Each of these plans included a comprehensive and cross-sector medium-term investment program forming the baseline for the stakeholder investment across the public/private sectors; and (ii) feasibility studies on project priorities for inclusion in an ADB project loan for the three national governments.
