Sustainable urban infrastructure development in South East Asia : evidence from Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore
Teriman, Suharto, Yigitcanlar, Tan, & Mayere, Severine (2011) Sustainable urban infrastructure development in South East Asia : evidence from Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. In Green Technologies : Concepts, Methodologies, Tools and Applications. IGI Global, pp. 1059-1071.
Many South East Asian cities have experienced substantial physical, economic and social transformations during the past several decades. The rapid pace of globalization and economic restructuring has resulted in these cities receiving the full impact of urbanization pressures. In an attempt to ease these pressures, cities such as Singapore, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur have advocated growth management approaches focusing especially on urban infrastructure sustainability. These approaches aim to achieve triple bottom line sustainability by balancing economic and social development, and environmental protection. This chapter evaluates three Asia-Pacific city cases, Singapore, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur, and assesses their experiences in managing their urban forms and infrastructure whilst promoting sustainable patterns of urban development.
