With massive urbanisation and increase in the world population projected for the next 30 years, it is believed that there will be greater pollution, and we will experience an increase in climate change phenomena, escalating food security issues and a lack of space. Studies show the world population will increase to 9.7 billion from the current 7.5 billion, whilst the projected Malaysian population will reach 44 million by 2050, with more than 90% living in urban areas and cities.
Realising the issues and needs that we may face in the future, landscape architects can play a vital role in the country’s development, with innovative planning and design providing better and more inspirational living environments for all.
OUR VISION FOR
THE NEXT 30 YEARS
In combatting the increased issues looming on the horizon, the Institute of Landscape Architects Malaysia (ILAM) is taking a proactive and bold step, to pave the direction for our professional practice, and to play a more influential role in national development.
Landscape Architecture Agenda 2050 (LAA2050) is a 30 years agenda, comprising our vision and 10 Strategic Focus Areas (SFA) required to drive the landscape architecture professional forwards. The initiative framework is in a developmental process until 2020, when it will be implemented in full force, leading to 2050.
Landscape as a base for wellbeing and inspired living, through innovative technology and sustainable values.
Landscape architects need to be key players in planning and designing the built environment and take a more influential role to lead and inspire design solutions that will shape our future, for a better living environment for all.
