Abstract

The infrastructure development managed by local governments which starts from pre-construction to the occupation of the building needs a sustainable development approach for sustainability. Since the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio, all sectors of society have been in the process of pursuing sustainability within their specific contexts. Development planning involved various stages and design inputs from various design consultants such as architects, town planner and engineers. Staff in local governments should possess knowledge on sustainable development and able to reflect it on their practices. However, it can be seen on the improper management of waste that led to pollution that is not in the practice of sustainable development. Therefore, local governments ‘staff should have a better understanding of sustainable development. Accordingly, this research focus is aimed on the role of the Local Governments with regards to knowledge transfer practices towards sustainable development. This study is to contribute to the enrichment of knowledge on the practices of sustainable development at Local Governments.
