‘Sustainable Tropical Urbanism’ recognises a region experiencing rapid urban growth while also facing issues of sustainability which involve Places, Pasts and People. These issues include climate change and environmental challenges, as well as cultural histories of colonialism and their continuing postcolonial effects on peoples of the Tropics and their future prospects. This Special Issue narrows its focus to 'Monsoonal Asia-Pacific' with case studies from the tropical cities of Khulna and Chittagong in Bangladesh, South Asia; Singapore, and the Indonesian city of Semarang, Southeast Asia; and the regional city of Cairns in the tropical north of Australia.
