The goal of the program is to help train a new generation of Association of South-East Asian Nations’ (ASEAN) urban planners, architects, and engineers in the latest techniques, materials and architectural designs to improve the air quality inside and outside of buildings, reduce the full lifecycle carbon footprint of the building and construction sector, and improve building siting and resilience to better adapt to climate impacts. U.S. State Department funding will support an institutional collaboration linking universities in the United States with counterparts in the ASEAN region to work together to advance green building and sustainable urban planning practices in ASEAN member states.  

This cooperative agreement will support travel to paired institutions, or other related activities such as participation in international conferences, by the U.S. awardee(s) for the purposes of sharing knowledge and building regional capacity.

As part of this collaboration, activities must include the development of new curricula/um for integrated architecture, engineering and urban planning courses or programs, and participation in a joint project devised by the paired U.S. and ASEAN institution(s), all of which is intended to prolong the institutional linkage beyond the life of the U.S. State Department funding.
