About this book

Introduction

The book is intended to be a landmark publication to showcase Singapore academics’ and practising planners’ work and thinking in the globalisation age. The book takes a reflective approach in reviewing the direction, impact and significance of sustainable development in Singapore planning and the future challenges facing the city-state looked upon by many developing countries as a ‘model’.

The book analyses and provides an insight to Singapore’s planning system and practices associated with sustainable development. It contributes and produces an impact on urban planning literature in a renewed perspective about Singapore that reflects the reality and need to address sustainability in the triangular relationship of economic, environmental and social developments.

Audience:
University libraries, students and government agencies with an interest in understanding the rationale of policy formation, planning system and its implementation in Singapore.
