A street is a structure that is significant and is always considered as the life of a city. The vital component of a town is its networks of streets. These networks can be regarded as a simple schematic view of the cities which captures most of their structures and organizations which contain a large amount of information on the underlying mechanisms of the cities. A sustainable city will provide features of safe and good quality streets that depend on the streets networks. These are to address the sustainable development goals (SDG) which are to make cities more inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. Under the eleventh SDG goals, people who live within the cities are projected to rise to 5 billion by the year 2030. Therefore, it is essential to create safe and comfortable street networks in a place to deal with the challenges brought by urbanization. This book encompasses numerous pertinent issues within the city and urban development in the context of the streets to achieve sustainable goals. Safe street from crime, street tree vandalism, street for pedestrian with landscape design, street as a legacy of trees and the maintenance and management of the street trees have all been incorporated into a single book publication - Streets in Landscape Architecture. This is in line with the initiatives enforced by the Government of Malaysia (GEM) in realizing sustainability through the implementation of Local Agenda 21 (LA21) and SDG goals which will inevitably lead to the enhancement of social well-being and significant improvement in the quality of life in Malaysia.
