Technical Cooperation

Project Name: Urban Landscaping Design and Beautification Cooperative Project (Bahrain)
Project Description:

In developing its “Vision 2030” for economic development, the government of Bahrain has placed an emphasis on policy objectives of great concern to the country’s future economic development and to people’s livelihoods, such as sustainable land development, environmentally sustainable development, and energy saving and carbon reduction. The Ministry of Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning lacks sufficient numbers of engineering-related project design experts, however, so the Taiwanese government has assigned consultants to implement this project, which will assist Bahrain in improving its environment and urban road landscaping, and in enhancing green cover and the quality of the environment in project-designated areas, in line with the country’s vision for national sustainable development.

Overall, the project will:

  1. Conduct landscaping design for specific roundabouts and traffic islands as designated by Bahraini authorities.
  2. Assist in reviewing the landscaping design and beautification of spaces commissioned by the Ministry of Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning.
  3. Assist the Bahraini public sector in promoting communal living environments and providing landscape design services.
  4. Develop interaction and exchange between Bahrain and Taiwan in landscape design and environmental greening techniques.
