SEOUL, Aug. 20 (Korea Bizwire) — The Ministry of Environment has signed an agreement with the Korea Environment Corp. and other sub-agencies to create a support group to successfully carry out the government’s Smart Green City Project.
The Smart Green City Project is a part of the Green New Deal initiative led by the government.
Led by regional authorities, the project offers a diagnosis of various environmental issues for each city and supports the effort to transition to eco-friendly practices.
The government plans to select 25 cities that made outstanding proposals to transform into eco-friendly municipalities that can better address climate change.
The government will fund up to 60 percent of the budget for projects designed by the selected cities for two years starting from 2021.
The selection process will run from September to November, with the final 25 cities selected to be announced in December.
