Development Studies: Book Series

Routledge Focus on Sustainable Planning and Development in Asia

Series Editor:

Rapid urbanization and booming cities in Asia allude to the need for new urban planning and development theories to help examine the current phenomenon and better predict future trends. This short book series brings insights into sustainable planning and development from across Asia. It examines Asian cities and their best practices of building sustainable cities, regions, and communities. The book series also explores ways in which Asian cities address the wicked problems of climate change, social inequality, and ageing population, as well as how they capitalize on opportunities from disruptive technologies and innovation. More importantly, this series hopes to offer new directions for sustainable planning and development in the context of increased uncertainty and changes. The useful, concise readings will appeal to those interested in the making of sustainable cities and communities.
