Oluwole Joseph Oni

However, the rising global campaign for sustainable construction demands that the challenges be addressed in such a way that is environmentally friendly, socially responsible and economically supportive. The poor attention being paid to sustainable development agenda in the construction processes within the developing countries poses great danger to the future generations. Construction professionals play essential roles in the design and execution of construction projects. Therefore, this paper reviews the implementation of sustainable construction in the developing countries; it explores current thinking and best practices in sustainable construction; and proposes a framework for enabling collaborative training and integrated practice among the professionals towards the implementation of sustainable construction in the developing countries.
