This second HKILA forum on land supply will address the technical and regulatory complexity of how landscapes are evaluated for development. Given Hong Kong's unremitting development pressures, both pro-development and pro-conservation groups are now calling for ways to evaluate sites for development based on environmental metrics and new conservation agreements. However, for the built-environment disciplines in Hong Kong, sustainability discourse is predominantly aligned with economic and urban sustainability, rather than the new forms of conservation that contend to use environmental modelling to justify the conversion of conservation uses. For urban and landscape resilience, we must ensure the critical and innovative deployment of conservation and impact assessment instruments and tools, including the measure of biodiversity, vulnerability, and ecosystem services. This forum will outline some of the data, knowledge, and arguments necessary to help make decisions, practice and participate in Hong Kong's ongoing land supply initiatives.

This event is free and open to the public.
