Call for Entries – IFLA AAPME Awards 2018

IFLA AAPME Awards 2018 – Resilience by Design is an inaugural award initiated by the IFLA Africa, Asia Pacific and Middle East (AAPME) regions. Organised by the IFLA Asia Pacific region and Co-Chaired by the three IFLA regional presidents, it is an international award for landscape design and planning recognition that is open to all IFLA regions and practitioners around the world for projects within the Africa, Asia Pacific and Middle East regions. The Award offers unlimited submissions and free registration to all.

It is the first ever cross-regional collaborative platform created to showcase single and multidisciplinary projects grounded in the landscape, with the intention of building resilience in our urban and natural systems. The Award is also a call for examples of climate change adaptation, responsible practice and the pursuit of joint efforts to address issues of resilience building, illustrated with actual case studies.

Resilience is a goal. Building resilience is a continual process. There are many different areas of focus and challenge within resilience which are reflected in the award categories. Some of these categories also aim to focus on the intricate facets and outcomes that landscape architects have to support, protect and strengthen during the process of building resilience in our cities and our environments.

HOW TO ENTER

All projects MUST be based in Africa, or the Asia-Pacific and Middle East regions as defined by IFLA’s organisational structure.

Announcement of IFLA APR Election Result 2017

Following the election for the role of President of the IFLA APR held between 30th Aug – 30th Sept 2017, the chart below shows that the incumbent, Damian Tang, has been re-elected for a further two year term.

As a result, Mr Damian Tang was elected as the IFLA APR President for the 2017 – 2019 term.

 

As there is no other contestant for the Honorary Secretary position, an election is not required and thus Associate Professor Mike Barthelmeh will hold this appointment from 2017 to 2019.

On behalf of IFLA APR, we would like to thank all our members, industry partners, sponsors and fellow  professionals for their support and contributions in our achievements. We look forward to your continual support for IFLA APR as the new council embarks on an exciting journey ahead.
