Written by experts, this volume addresses the growth debate in Southeast Queensland, Australia, where population levels are expected to double over the next 20 years. Key topics explored include structuring growth, preparing for climate change, creating green and sustainable urban centers, integrating transport and infrastructure, and building a relationship between planning and the community. In addition, this analytical account considers how Australians, facing water and housing shortages as well as increasingly problematic traffic congestion, will have to determine how to develop the governance capacity to build on progressive practices.

Book Description University of Queensland Press, Australia, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Lessons for the future of urban Australia In recent years, south-east Queensland has become Australia s fastest growing urban area, with population levels expected to double over the next 20 years. This growth has caused water and housing shortages, while traffic congestion steadily increases, all of which has led to one of the world s most challenging urban management situations. A Climate for Growth brings together expert contributors to address key topics in the growth debate. Peter Spearritt tracks the emergence of a 200-kilometre city in south-east Queensland; while Ian Lowe gives a timely reminder of the serious resource shortages and environmental issues that have emerged. Other contributors consider design for this climate, with an emphasis on integrating transport and greenspace; chart the haphazard evolution of the region s transport system; and show the impact of local voices on planning in their own communities. The growth dilemmas facing Brisbane, the Gold and Sunshine coasts and surrounding areas will ultimately affect all of metropolitan Australia- whether to build infrastructure that eases water and transport deficits but hastens climate change; how to address rising community unease about growth; how to develop the governance capacity to build on progressive practices. These issues will impact every Australian living in urban areas or growth corridors . Seller Inventory # BTE9780702237768

Lessons for the future of urban Australia In recent years, south-east Queensland has become Australia's fastest growing urban area, with population levels expected to double over the next 20 years. This growth has caused water and housing shortages, while traffic congestion steadily increases, all of which has led to one of the world's most challenging urban management situations. A Climate for Growth brings together expert contributors to address key topics in the growth debate. Peter Spearritt tracks the emergence of a '200-kilometre city' in south-east Queensland; while Ian Lowe gives a timely reminder of the serious resource shortages and environmental issues that have emerged.
