About This Proceeding

The volume contains selected, peer-reviewed papers from the 4th International Conference on Rebuilding Place (ICRP 2019), 06-07 November 2019, Universiti Sains Malaysia.

 

The theme entitled ‘Carving the Future Built Environment: Environmental, Economic and Social Resilience’ focuses on the core pillars of sustainability to be safeguarded in the onslaught of global warming and climate change threats causing rampant hazards of floods, storms, droughts and typhoons over the recent decade. This phenomenon is predicted to escalate in the future, where the increasing severity of these disasters will subsequently result in large number of displaced people and refugees. As the world population is estimated to reach 9 billion by 2050, the increase of urban inhabitants struggling for shelter and amenities, the aftermath of disasters on the environment, social and economic stability and growth are urgent issues to be tackled to reduce losses especially in the poorest, most vulnerable communities within developing countries. In carving a better future built environment, the key issue is to offer more resilient solutions for communities and cities to encounter and surpass a colossal disaster with holistic revival approach and regeneration strategies from all dimensions from the physical, social, scientific and political aspects.
