Towards an integrated framework for coastal eco-cities

Towards an integrated framework for coastal eco-cities
Towards an integrated framework for coastal eco-cities
This report presents a structured and informative analysis of two poignant European and Asian Coastal Eco-City projects. The scholars have recognised the diverse pathways Eco- City developments take within the duration their development; therefore we work towards a framework that draws upon influences from two, polarised developments in Eco-City design.

Available data for both cities was not equally distributed for all aspects of the development process; however we present a comprehensive analysis throughout various stages, from initial project drivers, through to project outcomes.

The environmental, social, and legal/political aspects of both developments are clearly outlined in order to reveal transferrable elements of Eco-City developments across EU- Asia borders. Equally, the pivotal role of contract arrangement and stakeholder engagement across two juxtaposed cultures are compared in context.

We then give recommendations for an integrated framework for Eco-City design. We address green building standards, energy supply, waste management, transportation, and coastal infrastructures, as well as the integral role of Key Performance Indicators.

We conclude the text with an analysis of transferability and the feasibility of combining EU-Asia Eco-City concepts towards the common goal of sustainable development.

Abstract

This report presents a structured and informative analysis of two poignant European and Asian Coastal Eco-City projects. The scholars have recognised the diverse pathways Eco- City developments take within the duration their development; therefore we work towards a framework that draws upon influences from two, polarised developments in Eco-City design.

Available data for both cities was not equally distributed for all aspects of the development process; however we present a comprehensive analysis throughout various stages, from initial project drivers, through to project outcomes.

The environmental, social, and legal/political aspects of both developments are clearly outlined in order to reveal transferrable elements of Eco-City developments across EU- Asia borders. Equally, the pivotal role of contract arrangement and stakeholder engagement across two juxtaposed cultures are compared in context.

We then give recommendations for an integrated framework for Eco-City design. We address green building standards, energy supply, waste management, transportation, and coastal infrastructures, as well as the integral role of Key Performance Indicators.

We conclude the text with an analysis of transferability and the feasibility of combining EU-Asia Eco-City concepts towards the common goal of sustainable development.
