Eco-Cities in Pan-Asia
6 March 2013
Across Asia, a series of national and international eco-city initiatives have been launched in recent years. The Journal of Urban Technology (volume 20/1; January 2013) special issue ‘Eco-Cities in Pan-Asia: international discourses, local practices’ brings together seven papers by leading scholars aimed at providing an overview of, and critical insights into, contemporary eco-city initiatives across a variety of Asian national contexts.
The special issue is the result of an international conference held at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore) in June 2011.
