Urban growth management for sustainable urbanization : examples from Asia-Pacific city regions
Teriman, Suharto, Yigitcanlar, Tan, & Mayere, Severine (2009) Urban growth management for sustainable urbanization : examples from Asia-Pacific city regions. In Proceedings of the International Postgraduate Conference, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong.
During the past three decades cities in the Asia-Pacific region have undergone massive transformations, characterised by rapid population growth and urbanisation. The rapid pace of globalisation and economic restructuring has resulted in these cities receiving the full impact of urbanisation pressures. In attempting to ease these pressures, major cities have advocated growth management approaches that give particular interest to sustainable urbanization and emphasise compact and optimum development of urban forms. This paper seeks to provide an insight into sustainable urbanisation practice, particularly on the promotion of compact urbanisation within Asia-Pacific’s fastest growing regions. The finding shows that within the context of resource constraints, sustainable urbanisation has been a key factor in the adoption of urban growth management initiatives promoting viable use of scarce resources for urban expansion.
