Green Cities: Livable and Sustainable Cities in Asia
Asian Development Bank, 2011
by: Asian Development Bank (ADB)

Asia shares a vision of one day making all its cities livable. The knowledge and financial resources needed to realize that vision exist. But if the challenges of climate change and pollution are to be met, it is essential that we reduce energy demand in cities, and reduce the undesirable environmental impacts associated with energy production. It is also necessary to address the pollution of watersheds and the air. To achieve this, we must manage urbanization, city form, design, development density industry and logistics systems more efficiently and effectively.
