Sustainable Development and the Future of Cities

Forsideomslag
This book looks at how an increasingly urban world can also be a world where the ideas of sustainable development are put into practice. The book looks first at concepts, theories and problems of sustainable development - from a developed and a developing world perspective. It then considers regional perspectives, with contributions from Southeast Asia, North America and Eastern Europe. Finally the book presents local answers to the problems of sustainable urban development, with examples from Iran, Poland, Canada, Finland and elsewhere. This book will be of interest to urban planners, those involved in furthering the Agenda 21 debates, and all those concerned about the future of cities.
