Urban development, circular economy and the use of "RIGHT-Tech"​

Dernière mise à jour : 7 févr. 2023

Climate change and resource depletion are two of the most pressing global challenges of our time. As populations continue to grow and urbanize, it becomes increasingly important to develop sustainable urban environments that can both mitigate the impact of these challenges and create positive impacts. One of the key ways to achieve this is through the use of right-tech in the context of circular economy principles.

Right-tech refers to technologies that are not only environmentally sustainable but also economically and socially sustainable. These technologies are chosen for their ability to create high impact in terms of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and resource use, while also generating positive impacts for communities, businesses and the environment.

One of the key applications of right-tech in the context of urban development is through the promotion of the circular economy. The circular economy is a model of economic growth in which waste and resource use are minimized, and the value of materials and products is retained for as long as possible. By adopting circular economy principles, cities can reduce their resource consumption and waste generation, while creating new economic opportunities.

Urban agriculture is one example of right-tech in the context of the circular economy. By promoting local food production and reducing the need for long-distance transportation of food, urban agriculture can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and resource use. In addition, urban agriculture can provide a range of positive impacts, including improved health and well-being, increased access to fresh and healthy food, and the creation of green spaces and wildlife habitats.

Another example of right-tech in the context of urban development is the use of renewable energy sources. By promoting the use of solar, wind, and other renewable energy sources, cities can reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and resource use. In addition, renewable energy sources can provide a range of positive impacts, including improved air quality, reduced energy costs, and the creation of new jobs in the clean energy sector.

In conclusion, tackling climate change and resource depletion with right-tech in the context of urban development and the circular economy can provide a range of positive impacts, including reduced greenhouse gas emissions and resource use, improved health and well-being, increased access to fresh and healthy food, reduced dependence on non-renewable energy sources, and the creation of new economic opportunities. By adopting these principles, cities can help to build a more sustainable future for all.
