From the Back Cover:

Municipal authorities and agencies around the world are striving to place their cities on the road to sustainability. Cities, as very complex entities, offer a constant interaction between people, resources and the environment. This makes strategic planning demanding and difficult.

This book, written by worldwide specialists from Canada, India, Italy, Palestine, Peru, Spain and the Netherlands, is a guide to establishing a city on a sustainable path. It addresses sustainable urban planning issues by breaking the city down to its main components. The authors analyze and discuss such topics as:

  • urban social and economic factors, including immigration and cultural integration, the gender component, the formation of slums, and social indicators
  • the interaction of the city with the environment, including the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)
  • urban and regional economics, including specialization and dependency, asset management, and community facilities
  • the relationship of a city within its region
  • urban planning, including urban sprawl and core revitalization
  • housing and relocation, including such concepts as community participation
  • degradation and measures to reverse this situation
  • energy needs, transportation management, basic infrastructural services, the generation and disposal of waste, and water in the region
  • a city’s preparedness, including risk analysis and contingency plans
  • urban reconstruction after disasters

The concluding chapters provide a ‘what to do and how to do it’ practical roadmap for implementing a sustainability program.

 

"This volume belongs in the library of every serious city planner and policy-maker committed to building a future that works for us all."
