The Asia-Pacific region will experience immense urbanisation over the next 20 years.
The China−Australia Centre for Sustainable Urban Development (CAC_SUD) is an international research centre exploring how Asia-Pacific cities can plan for and manage sustainable growth.
Collaboration with governments, private-sector organisations and research institutions around the world enables CAC_SUD to develop innovative programs and policy recommendations of relevance to Australia, China and the Asia-Pacific region.
In December 2012, Australia and the People’s Republic of China celebrated the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations. The Australian Government’s Australia in the Asian Century White Paper, released in October 2012, illustrates the potential and ongoing benefits of a long-term relationship between Australia and the world’s fastest-growing economy.
The CAC_SUD partnership reflects how collaboration between researchers in Australia and China can help build better Asia-Pacific urban environments.
