Dispersed urban development in Asian developing countries has led to environmental degradation . 2004), many books that have dealt with sustainability have focused on European and North American experi- ences

Dispersed urban development in Asian developing countries has led to environmental degradation, increased energy consumption for transportation, serious problems of air and water pollution, traffic congestion, and another environmental problems (Singh, 2014; Sorensen et a. 2004). Cities in Asian developing countries tend to have thriving inner city areas. 2004), many books that have dealt with sustainability have focused on European and North American experi- ences. We believe it is essential to also understand the process of implementation of urban sustainability in the Latin American and, in particular, the Asian contexts.

While there has been much recent research into achieving sustainability in urban areas, most of this is specific to a particular region. This volume broadens these discussions by extending the analysis from North American and European cities to include East Asian cities. Many cities in Asia have deep historical roots, have sustained dense populations through time and have grown prosperous in recent decades. They also face significant environmental degradation and other planning challenges. In bringing together and comparing strategies and experiences from three distinct global regions, this book offers unique insights and new perspectives on the challenges of moving towards greater urban sustainability. While questioning which strategies can promote sustainable cities in a global context, the book also illustrates that while formulae generated out of American and European experience cannot be universally applied, some of the analytical approaches and experience of the other developed countries can offer insights for those working in different contexts. It argues that managing urban change for greater urban sustainability in diverse regions requires detailed understanding of local issues and regional strategies as well as strong support from local communities.
