Abstract : Over the last fourteen years the patterns of growth in major cities of Afghanistan have become dysfunctional, which have resulted in increasing pollution and costs of land and resources. This paper attempts to highlight a set of criteria for future intervention and management of sustainable neighborhoods. The case study was chosen meticulously, located in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, with focus on geographical and cultural context. Initially the paper describes the general background, outlines the key problems, and highlights the characteristics of sustainable development. Next, it seeks to synthesize the principles of sustainability into an agenda for the design of neighborhoods by identifying methodologies for efficient management of resources and how mobility and connectivity can be planned in pursuit to render a neighborhood more sustainable. The paper then concludes by drawing together some of the standards and suggesting steps that could be taken to ensure sustainable development while conserving natural resources needed for future generation so as to facilitate the creation of sustainable neighborhoods in Afghan cities. Keywords— Sustainable Neighborhood, Physical Structure, Design Approach, Mobility & Connectivity and Resources Management.
