Shaun Brodie • 08/11/2023
Asia Pacific Sustainability Walkable Cities Report 2023
The urban area and its associated design, planning, development and operation, plays and will continue to play a big role in bringing transformational change to address the changing way we live as well as our changing climate. To bring about beneficial living and urban environmental sustainability change that results in sustainable urban environs, in this report we will look at the following topics:
  • A Change for the Good
  • The 15-Minute City
  • Urban Public Space
  • Transit-Orientated Development
  • Ecological Solutions
  • Net-Zero Buildings
Key Takeaways
To hike sustainability and bring about beneficial urban environmental sustainability change that results in walkable sustainable urban environs, one concept cities in Asia Pacific can look to adopt and implement is the ‘15-minute city’ concept.
The 15-minute city is a fresh concept that promotes both urban environmental sustainability and urban livability.
When specifically considering urban public space in the Asia Pacific region in relation to sustainable 15-minute city urban environs, the aim for local governments is to generate all-inclusive citizen-friendly settings that are also economically workable.
To interconnect sustainable 15-minute urban environs, it is essential for cities in general, including those in Asia Pacific, to have a well-planned and efficient overall public transport system that is easily accessible, is convenient and cuts both journey times and air pollution levels for all their citizens.
The 15-minute city concept also places much emphasis on the need for greater food production via urban agriculture.
Finally, in order to reduce the amount of energy used by, and carbon emissions from, buildings in the Asia Pacific region, including buildings in walkable 15-minute city precincts, it will additionally be important to take the next step and go carbon neutral, which requires a "carbon balance" to be established.
