The Nipah infection is just one of over 40 new diseases that have emerged since the 1970s. Nipah virus (NiV) disease is a newly discovered infection of swine and humans that emerged in Malaysia in September 1998. The epidemic started in the northern Malaysian state of Perak and the disease was named after Kampung Sungai Nipah (Nipah River Village) where the first viral isolate was obtained (Chua et al., 1999). NiV causes severe illness, characterized by inflammation of the brain (encephalitis) or respiratory diseases. Respiratory signs predominate in pigs, that develop fever, nasal discharge, rapid and labored respiration with a notable, harsh non-producible cough, giving rise to the name ´´barking cough syndrome / one mile cough syndrome´´. It can cause significant economic losses to farmers. Other domestic animals like cats and dogs shown to be infected with Nipah virus (Hooper et al., 2001).Need to reinforce the improve preventive measures which include education of healthcare workers, veterinarians, and other first responders about infection control procedures and expanding the surveillance and laboratory capacity for rapid diagnosis of henipavirus in high risk areas.

As the world has transformed, so have cities. Today, cities are home to 54 percent of the world´s population, and by the middle of this century that figure will likely rise to 66 percent. According to the United Nations (UN) Habitat I (1972), Habitat II (1996) and Habitat III (2016) summits, cities are facing many serious challenges, including growing inequality, security concerns and the worsening impacts of climate change. Uncontrolled urbanization has led to many problems (haphazard growth of areas, emergence of slums, inadequate water and power supply, poor sanitation, shortage of transport and other civic amenities, shrinking green spaces, pollution, crime, and urban disaster risks such as fire, flood, road and industrial accidents, etc.). Worldwide, communities at the international, national and local level are continuously working to improve human habitats. In order to make our planet more sustainable, the UN has moved from the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Among the latter, the aim of SDG 11 is to ´´...make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.´´ In light of these challenges, various terms have emerged to help understand urban issues. Visualizing the problem, the United Nations program ´´Making Cities Resilient´´ is focused on mitigating the disaster risk in urban areas. This book analyzes terms such as: sustainable, resilient, livable, inclusive, smart and world class city, which have emerged in the process of combating urban challenges in today´s world. The book addresses emerging concepts for cities, challenges and potentials, urban environments, health and planning/policies. Covering 14 large cities in India, as well as case studies from Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Poland and Sweden, it provides a regional dimension to and micro-level perspective on urban issues.
