coupled technological, infrastructural and social sub-systems that can help urban areas realize low-carbon, resource-efficient outcomes leading to sustainable cities. By examining so called "Asian cities in transition"--defined as small, rapidly industrializing cities with populations less than 1 million that are expected to dominate future urbanization--researchers will compare development trajectories with those of megacities having populations greater than 10 million and smaller service-economy cities in the U.S., thus providing a road-map for sustainable development in different city types worldwide.

USAID is complementing this investment with PEER Science grants to collaborating partners at the Indian Institute of Technology-Kanpur, ICLEI-South Asia and the Resource Optimization Initiative-India with international researchers from Tongji and Tsinghua Universities in China and the Chinese Academy of Sciences-Institute for the Urban Environment.

Water and commerce-technologies to enable environmental sustainability in global markets - Duke University

This project will address critical elements of energy transport and production including treatment of ballast water, methods for diagnosing and fingerprinting contamination, and advanced technologies for oil-water separations. This research responds to a need for new materials and creative technological solutions to enable environmentally sustainable energy production and commerce for international maritime trade. With foreign research partners from Turkey, Singapore and France, the team aims to perform innovative research to develop new technologies and methods that enable the sustainability of water resources and to carry out life cycle assessments of various energy/technology mixes. Life cycle assessments will produce a multi-level analysis of impacts and trade-offs resulting from energy production and transport scenarios and from the technological innovations developed by the PIR
