Urbanization and sustainability: A synthesis study of Southeast, East, and North Asia (SENA)
Prof. SENA countries constitute a region that experienced liberalization, macroeconomic stabilization, restructuring and privatization, and legal and institutional reforms over the past three decades. Urbanization unfolded at various but mostly tenacious speeds, exerting tremendous pressure on social, economic, and environmental sustainability.
Based on a recently completed research project funded by NASA, this talk will highlight findings on four major issues on urbanization and sustainability in SENA countries:
- urban land use and land cover change: patterns, characteristics, & methods
- drivers, especially institutional drivers, and spatial determinants for urbanization
- impacts of urbanization
- synthesis at sub-regional level.
