BACKGROUND OF THE PROGRAM








For as long as civilisation progresses, the role of cities too will continue to evolve in order to better serve humanity. Urbanisation and sustainability are very real occurrences in our society today and the challenges we face in developing our property, landscapes and cities are very prominent; it is a global phenomenon and Malaysia is no exception.


Malaysia has long been identified as a promising hub for urban development across Asia; however, to transition to a sustainable and decarbonized pathway, many barriers need to be addressed such as low economic density, negative environmental impacts due to urban sprawl, the insufficient unification of policies that has negatively impacted urban and spatial planning, and lastly, financial and technical constraints.


Taking into account that land is a scare resource, it is hence crucial for the strategies to develop urban land to be done efficiently and feasibly with sustainability in mind and in conjunction with the national development objectives. In addition to existing plans and policies, the emergence of Covid-19 and future health threats will also shape future planning, as it has exacerbated the problems that were already lingering in our townships.


 


This is where property master planning comes into play; it forms the foundation of each site development by synthesising all elements that would make it liveable, to support a sustainable infrastructure. A good masterplan not only looks at long-term environmental and economic success but the liveability and harmony of its communities.


 



This November, Comfori brings you another can’t miss conference as part of our Property series: The Property Masterplan & Sustainability Conference 2020, which aims to explore how our property and urban landscape is expected to fare amidst the pandemic and beyond, bringing the brightest minds and top experts under a single roof to reanalyse current development plans and the externalities that need to be addressed as we work towards the SDG vision.
