Sustainability in Asia 00:59:00 2017-04-06
On Thursday's Backchat we're talking about the big subject of sustainable development in Asia. An international conference is taking place in Hong Kong on Friday, organised by Cornell University of the United States, and involving its Asian research partners. The focus will be on sustainable energy sources and how governments can balance environmental and economic concerns, the link between human health and the environment, agricultural policies, and the challenges of Asia's unprecedented scale of urbanisation. Well ... we said it was a big subject. So what do you think the policy makers should be focusing on, and how well are we doing here in Hong Kong?
