Smart Villages

A “smart village” aimed at tackling rural poverty while promoting community and sustainability has been unveiled in Malaysia.

Built to the northeast of capital Kuala Lumpur, Rimbunan Kaseh is the result of a public/private partnership and could be used as a model for providing relief from poverty around the world, according to its creators.

In addition to 100 homes, residents have access to educational, training, and recreational facilities on site as well as a sustainable agricultural system which provides a reliable food source and a supplementary income for residents.
