About this book

Water Land Cities is a collection of more than 400 snapshots, which portrays the remarkable patterns, striking mosaics, shapes and colours of life and landscapes of Sabah. Twelve short stories, interwoven between the pages of images, help to set the scene. The well-written text takes you through the many changes that Sabah has gone through, from being a lowly populated agricultural state to the modern economic entity that it has grown into today.

The snapshots brilliantly illustrate the many facets of water, land and cities, and the people who depend on them for their livelihood. The images are evocative and present a unique opportunity to acquire a broader perspective of Sabah as a young developing State with all its inherent challenges and opportunities. Contemporary issues such as impacts of land use and environmental management are given fair mention to further illustrate their importance in the coming changes of Sabah's waters, land and cities of the future.
