11-12 November 2010
The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Convention on the Transboundary Effects of Industrial Accidents and the Committee on Housing and Land Management invite you to a seminar on balancing the sometimes conflicting needs of land-use planning and industrial safety.
Industrial facilities often need to be close to transport infrastructure and population centres for their daily operation, but to preserve safety they need to maintain an appropriate distance from housing, commercial or recreation developments.
As cities continue to grow, more land for housing, commercial or recreation developments is required, increasing the pressure to build new developments closer to existing industrial facilities and making it difficult to find appropriate locations for new facilities.
Balancing the needs of industrial safety and new real estate developments for sustainable communities is complex and finding solutions requires an integrated approach.
This seminar brings together the skills and experiences of all the relevant stakeholders, representing a diverse range of organizations including public safety and planning authorities, operators of industrial facilities, real estate developers and non-governmental organizations.
The seminar will address these complex issues from different perspectives and look for a common approach to finding solutions.
More information about the seminar programme or to register for the seminar will be available soon through the seminar's information notice and the Industrial Accident Convention's website or the Housing and Land Management's website.
