oncentration of human habitation in large scale will burden natural environment which furthermore will degrade the environment and increase poverty, in point of fact that less poverty will raise environmental protection. Sustainable development which according to Munasinghe is supposed to strictly maintain the important linkages between social and economic development and environmental protection, has been offering to prevail over the issue. Occurrence of the linkages has been manifested into several workable techniques based on a cradle to grave paradigm, in order to achieve sustainable (eco) products. The techniques are, life cycle assessment (LCA) which designated to assess product life cycle for products in general, while LCA in Sustainable Architecture designated to assess building life cycle process particularly for architecture mostly at construction stage. Both techniques carried out estimation of cost, energy, and environmental impact that will be spent and occur along the product and/or building life cycle. In favor of urban settlements, we need an approach which can meet requirements for the sustainability itself besides could possibly ease informal settlements. Life cycle approach to sustainable (eco) urban settlements, particularly in tropical context, is the most appropriate method in achieving the sustainability, though assessment should be performed seperately to each sub systems embraced by the settlements. Based on above facts, this paper will ascertain that life cycle approach is the most appropriate method to achieve sustainability of the settlements, in perspective of infrastructures which dwelling among others housing as immense part of the settlements with respect to support and services facilities.
