discussions, research and policy recommendations. It also aimed to raise environmental awareness locally and globally especially
in the Asian region through various activities.
GEF-K has created and maintained a web portal for Kansaifs Sustainable City Development. Kansai is a region located in the center of Japan and is made up of many big cities like Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe and Sakai. The purpose of this portal is to disseminate information of the environmental
policies in Kansaifs leading cities and related business sectorfs state-of-the-art projects and technologies
to all interested audiences especially the Asian city policy makers and
business people. It is intended to promote green growth and eventually
attain the sustainable development goals(SDGs).
The information and data contained in this portal represent only some of the examples of sustainable development policies in Kansai and they are by no means
exhaustive. Interested audiences are advised to evaluate their relevance
and applicability based on their own judgement and discretion.
