              This book provides a conceptual framework for understanding the inclusive city. It clarifies the concept, dimensions and tensions of social and economic inclusion and outlines different forms of exclusion to which inclusion may be an antidote. The authors argue that as inclusion ...involves a range of inter-group and intra-group tensions, the unifying role of local government is crucial in making inclusion a reality for all, as is also the adoption of an inclusive and collaborative governance style. The book emphasizes the need to shift from citizens' rights to value creation, thus building a connection with urban economic development. It demonstrates that inclusion is an opportunity to widen the local resource base, create collaborative synergies, and improve conditions for entrepreneurship, which are conducive to the creation of shared urban prosperity. The book presents illustrative cases of inclusive urban prosperity from prominent cities in Europe and North America together with a few advanced cities in different parts of Asia. It will be a valuable resource for researchers, students and practitioners working in all areas of urban studies and sustainability.

              This report draws from interviews carried out with Caritas Aotearoa New Zealand partners and networks between March and August 2014. We approached groups with these key questions: What are the environmental issues you are experiencing in your work and community? What response...s are people making? What solutions do you think should be made? What else do you want to tell us about environmental impacts affecting people in your community? Caritas Aotearoa New Zealand is the agency for justice, peace and development of the New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference. We undertake advocacy, education, aid and development on both local and global issues affecting people in the Pacific, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. We are a member of Caritas Oceania, one of seven regions comprising the Caritas Internationalis confederation of 165 Catholic welfare, development and social justice organisations. Since 2003, Caritas Oceania has raised environmental justice and climate change issues within our confederation as matters of urgency affecting the wellbeing of peoples in the Pacific. The New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference has asked Caritas Aotearoa New Zealand to make the peoples of Oceania a priority in our work, and environmental justice is one of five key strategic goals in the Caritas Aotearoa New Zealand 2013-2017 strategic plan. Our Pacific regional strategy recognises that climate change and environmental degradation pose a severe threat to Pacific livelihoods and survival. Caritas aims to work with the most vulnerable communities affected by climate change, including tangata whenua (indigenous peoples), informal settlements, youth, women, disabled people and displaced people. Our aims include increasing community awareness of environmental issues and climate change in Aotearoa New Zealand and Oceania, promoting sustainability of natural resources, and undertaking advocacy to address structural environmental injustices.
