This book addresses the challenges posed by climate change for the cities and urban regions of the developing world. It is about the responses that are likely to be most relevant to the cities in the poorer countries, on the one hand, and to those of the fast industrialising countries on the other. How can planners, designers and other decision makers best secure development that is more resilient to the extreme conditions increasingly associated with climate change? And what techniques can they employ to ensure that the cities of tomorrow are developed along low carbon principles?
This beautifully illustrated book will be important reading for anyone seeking to learn more about international planning and design approaches in this era of climate change.
