Research Areas

Five research areas have been carefully identified and selected, to support our aims in investigating and understanding a particular kind of urbanisation in Monsoon Asia, and to propose approaches to secure its sustainable future.

Projects

Backed by the Batam city government, the Tropical Town project aims to develop alternative sustainable settlements that provide affordable housing for the low income inhabitants in developing countries, particularly in the tropics.
