Environmental Challenges and Sustainable Development in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area

The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area is one of the most rapid and well developed regions in the world. However, the pressure from the fast population increment as well as the old style of urbanization and industrialization in the past decades had posed threats to environmental sustainability and public health. To improve the quality of atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and anthroposphere and propose better management in the food-water-energy nexus are the major challenges that we need to provide interdisciplinary solutions. In this workshop, we would have in-depth discussions on the following topics:

a. the occurrence and detection of emerging contaminants (e.g., engineered nanomaterials, pharmaceuticals, endocrine disrupting compounds, personal care products, artificial sweeteners, herbicides, and pesticides);

b. the water and air quality monitoring and contaminant sensing;

c. the fate and transport and hazardous assessment of contaminants in the ecosystem;

d. advances in the technologies for contaminants remediations and ecosystem restoration;

e. industrial ecological planning and life cycle assessment;

f. sustainable management and regulations.


Through this workshop, we would like to provide interdisciplinary solutions with a solid scientific foundation, not only the scientific and engineering approach but also the management, to solve the environmental challenges in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Bay Area.
