The infrastructure demands created through urban-migration are creating multiple pressures on cities worldwide. This layering of commercial, industrial, social and environmental demands our environment are becoming ever more inter-relational at every level and across every stage of development. Moreover in Hong Kong where space is at a premium these pressures are intensified. Now more than ever Hong Kong must grasp opportunities to positively contribute toward ways in which we can augment liveability in Hong Kong and better prepare for the rapid and unpredictable changes in our environment.

In this presentation Deborah Kuh, Head of the Greening Landscape and Tree Management Section, at the Development Bureau will present a number of policy opportunities she is exploring within Government, and the roles businesses can play in balancing social, environmental and economic sustainability.
