RAWA ISLAND MASTER PLAN
Rawa Island is a paradise that everyone dreams of. Just 16 km off Mersing, Johor, Rawa island is unspoilt - with its secluded white beaches and palm fringed images, and with its cool green, clear lagoon, where fish darts and swims. Rawa also has many caves for exploration and its offshore coral reefs are rich with marine life. In short, Rawa Island offers true simple pleasure of the good natural island environment.
Hence the master plan of Rawa Island has to ensure that the natural habitat and ecology of Rawa is conserve and preserved. The master plan is also to ensure that the carrying capacity of the island remains a priority so that the island is not over burdened and its tourism development is sustainable. This means respecting the capacity of the local system to sustain growth. Thus the master plan of Rawa adopts low impact development growth strategy and adaptive passive solutions as much as possible in addressing needs for its expansion. Simple green technologies are also proposed to overcome its waste issues and its energy and potable water needs.
