The Role and Impact of Physical Town Planning, Urban Design and Architectural Building Practices in Environmental Sustainability

Dr.Jerry Magutu

This article, based on a literature review, takes cognizance of the ecological interdependence of the natural environment and the need for its sustainability. Towns and urban centers occupy a built environment of a miniscule proportion of the world’s land surface but utilize well over 75% of the world’s resources and discharge similar amounts of waste, and argue for the importance of collaboration and sound approaches in physical town planning urban design and architectural building practices.
