IFLA, or the International Federation of Landscape Architects, is an organisation that represents the landscape architecture profession globally, and provides leadership and networks supporting the development of the profession. IFLA also effectively participates in the realisation of attractive, equitable and sustainable environments. With the Asia Pacific being one of the fastest developing regions and most diverse in terms of culture in the world, it is a great platform to showcase and share methodology and knowledge of landscape architecture, specifically for the region.
The host city of Kuching (The Cat City), the capital city of Sarawak state, is strategically located at the southern tip of Borneo and contains the main international airport, thereby making it a suitable and easily accessed destination for IFLA delegates from around the region. The city also lies in close proximity to many natural reserves such as national parks, cultural villages, wildlife research & rehabilitation centres, and is home to world’s most exotic flora and fauna. All this makes it a great venue for delegates to experience so much within a short distance from Kuching city centre.
