    Abstract

    Introduction Economic globalisation has become 'a strong force' driving the urban development of Asian countries. T he formation of megacities which have 10 million or more inhabitants, or a new class of urban agglomeration of Extended M etropolit an Regions (EM Rs), has increased in number and scale (McGee , 199 1, 1995; Douglass, 2000 ). It is estimated that the urban population in East Asia will increase by approximately 200 million people over the next twenty-five years , of which 40 % will occur in the peri-urb an area (PUA).I The environmental challenges of th esemegacities - high rat es of land an d energy consumption, severe pollution of air, water and soil, and decrease of quality of life - have become of increasing concern (Marcotullio, 2001 ; Yueng, 2001 ; Webster, 2002; Ng and Hi lls, 200 3).
