              The issues of urban sustainability are critical, and more so for cities with already high density where the problems of resource constraints, quality of urban community life, and quality of the physical environment are exacerbated by the sheer intensity of social and economic act...ivities within the usually limited confines of metropolitan boundaries. This Guidebook to Urban Sustainability Indicators presents a comprehensive guide for assessing sustainable urban development. It covers thirteen thematic areas pertaining to sustainability of cities and urban areas, which have direct implications on spatial planning and policies, namely Land, Community, Economy, Transport, Biodiversity, Food, Energy, Climate, Air, Water, Waste, Governance and, Culture, and considers how they interlink with one another. The Guidebook aims to advance the knowledge of sustainable urban development and cities through cross-disciplinary thinking and evaluation. It presents sustainability performance indicators for self-assessment and benchmarking cities, and includes both qualitative and quantitative indicators. It draws on a wide range of international databases such as the World Bank's Environmental Performance Indicators to local databases like the Sustainable Seattle Indicators. In total, over 1,100 indicators for sustainable development were studied and feature in the Guidebook. These indicators are organized into sub-themes or dimensions, each representing an area of focus or principle of sustainability. This book is a must read for those who want to have better understanding of the concept of integrated sustainability of urban development from a holistic perspective, rather than approaching sustainability from a single thematic issue. Scholars and students in Urban Planning, Urban Design, and Sustainability Assessment as well as urban professionals, planners and designers, policy makers and municipal authorities will benefit greatly from the diversity and the depth of each theme presen

              We define sustainability citizenship in a simple and straightforward way to show its practical application as both a goal and a result of political, economic and built environmental initiatives by states and communities that incorporate structural and cultural socio-environmental... transformation. Our emphasis is not on legal, prescriptive, ideal and philosophical rights and duties based discourses - as many of the contributions in this field are - but rather on questions surrounding practical and collective transformation. As such the contributions focus on and debate issues such as: process and policy, circumstance and context, activity and change enablers. Therefore we take a much more user-friendly approach to urban sustainability citizenship type analyses for social science and humanities students in areas such as: governance, design, planning, development, environmental, sustainability, sociology, politics, policy, and urban economics. Equally our practical approach makes our book a handy briefing manual on socio-economic contexts for technical and scientific students - sustainability inventors, innovators and process designers.

              Urban Sustainability in Theory and Practice: Circles of sustainability (Hardback)

              Cities are home to the most consequential current attempts at human adaptation and they provide one possible focus for the flourishing of life on this planet. However, for this to be realized in more than an ad hoc way, a substantial rethinking of current approaches and practices... needs to occur. Urban Sustainability in Theory and Practice responds to the crises of sustainability in the world today by going back to basics. It makes four major contributions to thinking about and acting upon cities. It provides a means of reflexivity learning about urban sustainability in the process of working practically for positive social development and projected change. It challenges the usually taken-for-granted nature of sustainability practices while providing tools for modifying those practices. It emphasizes the necessity of a holistic and integrated understanding of urban life. Finally it rewrites existing dominant understandings of the social whole such as the triple-bottom line approach that reduce environmental questions to externalities and social questions to background issues. The book is a practical and conceptual guide for rethinking urban engagement. A timely and much-needed contribution to rethinking the practice of urban sustainability, this book collates connected concepts and principles into an integrated approach for understanding urban areas in local-global context. Covering the full range of sustainability domains and bridging discourses aimed at academics and practitioners, this is an essential read for all those studying, researching and working in urban geography, sustainability assessment, urban planning, urban sociology and politics, sustainable development and environmental studies.
