Asia Leadership Program 2017

6
27 June 2017 to 30 June 2017

With the theme "Climate Resilient, Sustainable and Inclusive Urban Development," this year's Asia Leadership Program is offered by invitation only to participants at director-level or above, municipal urban development specialists in ADB's client countries, and those involved in the planning and development of urban projects.

This annual event enabled participants to incorporate insights and learnings to help lead in policy dialogues and development, maximize financing mechanisms, and apply relevant technologies and innovations in their respective cities.

Participants were expected to:

  • describe key policy challenges in achieving climate resilient, sustainable, and inclusive urban development;
  • discuss the concept of ‘livable cities, green cities, smart cities, etc.’ through a set of indexes that are based on multi-sector/thematic measures;
  • identify tools useful in achieving leadership competencies (strategic leadership, collaborative problem solving, collaborative implementation for resource sharing, conflict resolution and negotiation, and public relations and communications) needed for reforms;
  • find out the latest technologies and innovations that contribute to energy efficiency, water resources management, efficient public transportation, urban housing, etc.;
  • identify appropriate financing mechanisms and opportunities for networking; and
  • list action items to capture what has been learned and how these can help introduce changes to their projects.
