This project aims to build a Sino-Dutch transnational network for the design on inclusive wise-waste cities. We focus on agricultural products, electronic products and plastic products, and carry out the comparative research from three levels saying urban metabolism, inclusive infrastructure design & management, and community building, to comprehensively explore and evaluate the implementation effects of wise-waste cities. The project engages researchers in a consortium led by the universities and public agencies of Rotterdam, TUD, PBL, Peking, Tongji and CityU-SRI, and local stakeholders. Outcomes are expected to support inclusive cities and zero-waste cities pilots in China and The Netherlands.
