I really wonder why developing countries are not focusing on green buildings as much as the developed countries are doing so. I hope USGBC does some home work on their part and fix the fee of the different LEED Exams and arrange conferences and workshops in the developing countries which will educate the public about LEED and its significance resulting in more green buildings in these countries.

Interesting LEED CI for retail projects still ramping up in v4. Hopefully it catches up as v2009 registrations approachs the end date. That will help a lot on market demands for better materials, CWM and occupants wellness!
