Title: EcoCity Climate Change Adaption Initiatives
EcoCity is working on three demonstration projects for alternative development models that integrate a number of sustainability issues such as ways to incorporate water saving and energy efficiency initiatives. Two of these projects are housing developments that use two methods that have been adopted by the government as measures to address the drastic need for housing for the very poor to low middle income groups. The third project is a learning center where school children in particular are introduced to sustainable development through the “Green Kids” training program and also are exposed to a number of water and energy saving technologies.
