UNEP Eco-Town Project

UNEP IETC undertakes the development of Eco-Towns in the Asia-Pacific region to promote sending out of information related to environmentally sound technologies (EST) and transfer technologies.
Kawasaki City cooperates with this project by providing assistance for project conferences attended by Eco-Town participants so that the experience accumulated by Kawasaki Eco-Town can be used to create other Eco-Towns in developing countries.
