Sustainable natural resource management in peri-urban areas of Southeast Asia

Peri-Urban Sustainable Resource Management

BORDA is engaged in a 10-year project to bring sustainable resource management to peri-urban areas in countries across Southeast Asia. The objective of the project is to strengthen peri-urban areas by improving the provision of water-related public services and the management of natural resources, increasing climate resilience and enabling the creation of liveable urban spaces.

Key features of the programme are:

  • Exemplary implementations of water management solutions in their technological, planning, social and process-oriented dimensions
  • Essential public services (especially for sanitation, faecal sludge and waste management) established as an integral part of urban modernisation strategies
  • Multi-faceted approach to capacity development to overcome the prevailing habit of thinking in sectoral and administrative silos
  • Support for new strategic partnerships — in line with the principle of subsidiarity — between citizens, civil society, municipalities, city planners, service providers and community representatives
