The Asia-Pacific region is one of the most vulnerable regions in the world to
flooding. This vulnerability will only increase with rapid urbanization
placing more people and infrastructure in harms way. At the same time, rapid
urbanization is leading to environmental degradation reducing economic growth.
The EU’s world-leading experiences in city planning, infrastructure services
and management creates the potential for Europe to export green infrastructure
solutions to ensure rapidly expanding Asian cities have sustainable
infrastructure. This also has the potential to create economic growth and job
creation in Europe.
