ASEAN Sustainable Urbanisation
Urbanisation is a crucial driver of economic growth. No country has yet achieved middle- income status without a significant shift of its population into cities. The underlying causes include the benefits of economy scale for larger cities, as well as the higher wages that people typically receive as they transition from an agrarian to an urban society.
Further, urbanisation also poses challenges related to inclusiveness (particularly housing), environmental pollution, economic efficiency (linked to rising traffic congestion), health and cultural heritage. While presenting opportunities for women and girls that are often unavailable in rural settings, urbanisation can also cause them to seek work in the informal sector, contributing to income disparity and increased risk, including from violent crime. These challenges can be amplified by rapid and haphazard urbanisation, which has occurred in many ASEAN countries. These challenges must be addressed in order to achieve sustainable urbanisation. Cities need to develop strategies to sustain the momentum of economic activities, provision of housing, healthcare, education, energy services, and mitigate the impacts of climate change, as well as manage various other priorities.
Local government is the key factor to achieve a successful development in the ASEAN Community. It has become an urgent matter for any ASEAN member to cooperate with cities and local governments in efforts to obtain standards and certification as needed and agreed by the ASEAN community.
In 2018, ASEAN released the ASEAN Sustainable Urbanisation Strategy (ASUS), which aims to support and improve the effectiveness of various ASEAN city networks, including the ASEAN Smart Cities Network (ASCN), the ASEAN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Frontrunner Cities Programme, ASEAN Mayors Forum, and various other city networks in ASEAN, such as those operating under the Brunei Darussalam-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines – East ASEAN Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA), and the Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand – Growth Triangle (IMT-GT).
Sustainable urbanisation focuses on promoting actions that enable urban areas to capture the benefits linked to large concentrations of people while building resilience to the associated challenges.
