Summary
"Because cities are such complex systems, creating sustainable urban environments is a challenging goal. No single strategy--or even several strategies--will be enough to achieve tomorrow's healthy and sustainable cities. The challenges resist compartmentalization, because the factors intersect and overlap. The articles in this compendium were chosen to expand the understanding of these complicated issues in a non-linear way. The editor, himself a respected and experienced researcher in this field, has selected research in the following topics: improving urban air quality; municipal solid waste alternatives; municipal water management; reducing urban energy consumption. The interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary strategies found in these chapters will be useful to both researchers and practitioners, helping them work together more effectively to solve the complex challenges of reaching healthy and sustainable urban futures. The book suggests the concrete implications of the various strategies for different user groups, such as urban planners, politicians, researchers, and business interests. It will be useful to graduate-level students of urban studies, urban planning, and sustainability, as well as policymakers and sustainability advocates around the world."--
