Problem Description

Since 2007, Huaqiao has seen the implementation of a radical approach to low-carbon planning and environmental regeneration. To regenerate the local area and attract more investment, the local government developed a long-term plan for improving energy use, transport and water and waste management, as well as supporting natural habitats. There are also several land recovery projects in Huaqiao (Qiaoyuan, Central Park, Huaxi Park, and Tianfu Ecological Zone) which used to be either landfill, or un-usable land.
