New Urbanism leading to sustainable development is more or less the latest urban planning trend around the globe.

It made it easy to access key health indicators of various countries at a go and to me that is a useful
As mentioned previously, integrated land use and transportation systems are the back bone of sustainability in cities and one of the major keys for improving urban planning through long term political engagements. Investments in infrastructure like housing, transportation, offices and shops will establish economic growth and employment improvement. All stakeholders involved in the development of cities / city regions should understand the fact that there are no successful implementation strategy plans available to sustainable development. Based on readings on sustainability in cities, it became clear that sustainability should be viewed as a constant process that keeps on changing as the needs of the communities / population changes. For nations to become economical successful, they need to understand that the growth in their cities forms the foundation towards that

Background: from traditional crafts to smart textile services Crafts & smart textiles for sustainability The environmental and societal concerns risen from textile and garment production areas, are well known and covered by now (Allwood, Laursen, de Rodriguez, & Bocken, 2006; Aus, 2011; Fletcher, 2008). The development of smart textile products, which lie in the intersection of fashion and technology, raises additional sustainability challenges for the traditional garment and electronics industries. The ecological concerns have been covered in the PhD thesis of Köhler (Köhler, 2013). Textiles and technology, both innovation and fashion driven industries, have their share in the global consumption pace and the concerns involved. However,

Great sanitation is essential for the health of the urban and rural populations. “Indicator was taken from Malaysia: Achieving The Millennium Development Goals; Successes and Challenges, Page 203, Published by the United Nations Country Team, Malaysia, 2005” ¬¬Green Building A Green building focuses on expanding the efficiency of resource use – energy, water, and materials – while reducing building impact on human health and the environment during the building’s lifecycle, through better siting, design, configuration, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal. Green Buildings should be designed and operated to reduce the overall impact of the built environment on its surroundings. Green building practices can lessen a building’s operating expenses by as much as 9 percent, increase building value by 7.5 percent and realise a 6.6 percent increase in return on
