Abstract

The world is urbanizing rapidly, with cities today concentrating more people prior to urbanization. Today it is estimated that more than half of the world's population resides in towns and cities. This population explosion has affected the development in urban areas. Such uncontrolled growth often results in the destruction of arable land vital food production, slums growth, uncontrolled and haphazard development with the spread of vast shanty towns. This perspective brings a pressing reality to the necessity to build tomorrow’s world on sustainable principles. In view of the above subject matter, this paper will analyse, investigate and develop strategies on how sustainable urbanism can be implemented in developing countries by understudying various environmental assessment tools. This study will showcase a brief analysis and comparison of existing assessment tools across the globe.
