Abstract

The management of solid waste continues to be a major challenge of sustainable development, particularly in the rapidly growing cities of developing countries. Population growth along with fast pace urbanization and industrialization has raised the resource consumption and waste production and creating greater pressure on the environment and public health. Being a rapid developing region in Malaysia, Iskandar Malaysia faces similar issue. In view to plan Iskandar Malaysia towards sustainability by circular metabolism via recycling and recovery practice, this paper attempts to explore the concept of Eco-town development in Japan, particularly the case of Kawasaki Eco-Town.
