Riverbank squatter settlements are commonly found in the urban area of many developing countries. Some of these settlements existed long before the rapid development of the city.
However, these 'squatters' settlement are often times considered illegal, thus these settlements are prone to the exclusion of many crucial facilities. In addition, their interactions with the surrounding environment also inadvertently leaves an impact on the sustainability of the river.
But there is life with every community. Thus the topic at hand is a complex issue where approach from various dimensions will be the most favourable.
Institut Sultan Iskandar (ISI) has initiated a series of dialogue and discourse with our potential partners from Japan and Indonesia to look into possible initiatives for future understanding and improvements.
May this initiative become one of the many little steps that can be taken for our society and environment to be part of a better and more sustainable world.
