HOPE Webinar #2

Health Governance to promote inclusive urban planning approaches targeting the quality of life for citizens in Vietnam

The topics of energy, climate and environmental policy are of central importance to the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung. This topic is not only a regulatory challenge, but also a core concern for the preservation of creation and the protection of the livelihoods of current and future generations. We therefore want to provide impetus for a sustainable approach to the environment at national and international level. Environmental protection is also a cross-sectional task that places previous fields of activity of KAS in the areas of development, economy, security and energy in a changed context and at the same time ties in with the existing fields of activity.
