Khalil, H. A. E. E., "Sustainable Urbanism: Theories and Green Rating Systems", 10th Annual International Energy Conversion Engineering Conference, 48th AIAA/ASME/SAE/ASEE Joint Propulsion Conference & Exhibit, Atlanta, Georgia, USA, 2012. Abstract

Sustainability has been the core of debates on development for the past decades with the additional debate on quality of life as a right even to vulnerable groups. Thus, advocating a more holistic approach to urban development. Sustainable Urbanism theories have been developing over the past 2 decades or so, while only recently comprehensive indices to measure or rate the sustainability of urban agglomerations have been developed. This paper examines the relation between following an urban planning theory or pattern and scoring high on the sustainability charts. The paper examines a number of cities rated by the Green City Index reviewing the relationship between their scores in various fields related to energy efficiency and the concepts governing their urban growth. The paper concludes a matrix showing the correlations between sustainable urbanism principles and performance indicators. The paper then applies this matrix to one of the new cities developed in Greater Cairo Metropolitan Region to examine how sustainability can be ensured and achieved in its future growth.
