The Faculty of Architecture and Planning of the National University of Civil Engineering (NUCE) in close collaboration with the Belgian Embassy in Hanoi, organise a workshop on “Learning Network for Sustainable Neighbourhoods in Vietnam (LNSNV)” – an initiative of the Faculty of Engineering Technology of the Catholic University of Leuven (KUL).
The Learning Network for Sustainable Neighbourhoods in Vietnam (LNSNV) aims to increase the sustainability of urban development in an integrated manner for flood and drought-sensitive areas throughout a multidisciplinary approach. The ambition of the LNSNV is to bring together Belgian and Vietnamese experts in architecture, engineering, urban planning, sustainable energy, landscape architecture, social sciences, greening, hydrology, etc. on the one hand and project developers on the other hand in order to support the implementation of sustainable neighbourhoods.
The workshop will deal with urban development under climate change and will focus on flood risk mitigation, the role that green networks in the city can play, the needs for housing associated with climate adaptation and water robust, urban planning and landscape architecture and sustainable energy.
