Spatial Planning and Sustainable Development
This book attempts to provide insights into the achievement of a sustainable urban form, through spatial planning and implementation; here, we focus on planning experiences at the levels of local cities and some metropolitan areas in Asian countries. This book investigates the impact of planning policy on spatial planning implementation, from multidisciplinary viewpoints encompassing land-use patterns, housing development, transportation, green design, and agricultural and ecological systems in the urbanization process. We seek to learn from researchers in an integrated multidisciplinary platform that reflects a variety of perspectives, such as economic development, social equality, and ecological protection, with a view to achieving a sustainable urban form.
Focuses on the role of public actors in implementing spatial planning Features case studies based on existing concepts of sustainable urban form in the planning practice of various Asian countries Discusses a matrix of practice examples from a multidisciplinary perspectiveUses particular methods such as statistical- and geospatial analysis and urban models Policy measures in planning and design are taken as important tools to achieve sustainable urban form Documents Asian planning experiences from a multidisciplinary viewpoint
