Urban planners play the roles of developing functional and aesthetically pleasing cities with the highest and best use of land, and at the same time ensure that they are ecological friendly. It is important to develop low carbon cities to ensure low CO2 emissions in the urban areas. The planning of South Johor Economic Region (SJER), which commonly known as the Iskandar Development Region (IDR) provides a good opportunity for urban planners to incorporate the ideas of low carbon cities in this proposed high growth region. This paper aims to explore the concept of low carbon cities and examine the scenarios toward the realization of sustainable cities.
