Cities are crucial to economic activities and growth. In Asia Pacific, they generate over 80 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP). As the region continues to grow, the population densities of Asian cities are also rising, increasing demand for rapid urban development in these areas. How do build enough without creative a negative impact to the environment and our community? What can Governments and Corporations do to ensure that quantity and quality are achieved amid the rapid growth.
