Countries in Southeast Asia need to build - individually and collectively - the capacity of their cities and towns to promote economic growth and development, to make urban development more sustainable, to mitigate and adapt to climate change, and to ensure that all groups in society share in the development. This book is a result of a series. Sustainable Urban Infrastructure Development in South East Asia: /ch Many South East Asian cities have experienced substantial physical, economic and social transformations during the past several decades. The rapid pace ofAuthor: Suharto Teriman, Tan Yigitcanlar, Severine Mayere. Urbanization and rapid population growth are two major, inevitable consequences of any city-region focusing on economic development such as in South East Asia (Marcotullio, ; Ooi, ). The South and South East Asian regions are home to one-third of the developing world’s urban population, with a similar proportion of this population residing in urban by: 1. Percentage of Urban Population Source: UN-DESA (). Definitions of East Asia as a region vary, but most commonly, it is understood to include Japan, South and North Korea, China.

South Asia seems to defy the theory that development of infrastructure is required for sustained economic growth. Despite the severe and persistent shortage of quality infrastructure, it is the fastest growing region in the world. This paper argues that the trend cannot continue. As shown in the table (right), China's urban population growth is higher than that of Asia as well as the world. China's urbanization rate in was higher than that of Asia and roughly on par with the levels in East and South-East Asia. However, the country still has a long way to go in catching up with the western developed countries.   As China sought to break through the web of sanctions placed upon it in , it looked first to the countries of Asia. These countries had a different view of China . This development is spearheaded by Chinese dam-builders and financiers. The book edited by Siciliano and Urban is therefore very timely and addresses the role of Chinese dam-builders in Asia and Africa in a nuanced manner, drawing on a wide range of in-depth research.

  Studwell's book is a coherent, well-reasoned primer on the causes of economic growth and lack thereof in east Asia. Through careful historical analysis, the author has clearly disproved the myths propagated by experts on both sides of the left-right divide regarding the drivers of /5(). Srinivas, S.
