Urban areas are home to over half the world's people and are at the forefront of the climate change issue. The need for a global research effort to establish the current understanding of climate change adaptation and mitigation at the city level is urgent. To meet this goal a coalition of international researchers - the Urban Climate Change Research Network (UCCRN) - was formed at the time of the C40 Large Cities Climate Summit in New York in 2007. This book is the First UCCRN Assessment Report on Climate Change and Cities. The authors are all international experts from a diverse range of cities with varying socio-economic conditions, from both the developing and developed world. It is invaluable for mayors, city officials and policymakers; urban sustainability officers and urban planners; and researchers, professors and advanced students.

Public facilities provide important goods and services which contribute to and enhance the quality of life. The search for appropriate locations for these facilities attracts attention from academics, politicians, bureaucrats and the general public. The process by which locations are selected is therefore one of collective choice drawing together technical information on aspects such as needs assessment, performance measurement and estimates of environmental, social and economic impacts. Of equal importance are the attitudes preferences and perceptions of the decision makers, managers and end users. The Right Place provides a critical review of contemporary approaches used to address locational issues and problems of public facilities; such facilities include noxious waste dumps, recycling depots and power stations, as well as more welcome schools, hospitals and parks. Fundamental concepts such as choice, consensus and accountability which underlie the search process are identified and discussed, and the author highlights the important relationships between public facilities, welfare and planning to provide an introduction to the book. Throughout the text the concept of shared responsibility provides a framework for drawing together the diverse range of literature used in this study. Findings from the social sciences and appropriate areas of operational research are used to investigate and discuss how the siting of public facilities can be improved in terms of service productivity and efficiency while still addressing the requirements of equity and economy. The author looks at the style of regulatory government that is emerging and its effect on the decision making process and discusses in some detail the impact of information technology on the planning process and political and bureaucratic procedures. This technology includes computer-based decision support systems and multi-criteria decision aid models; several of these are discussed in detail. The Right Place will aid readers to identify the fundamental principles and approaches relating to complex locational problems and will assist them to develop procedures that will minimize planning errors. Case studies, drawn from a variety of countries, are used to illustrate the arguments. The Right Place is written for senior undergraduates and postgraduate students in colleges, universities and polytechnics with an interest in planning, public policy and administration and political science. It will prove to be a valuable reference source for planners involved with waste management, highway engineering and social services and members of the regulatory agencies and government bodies who deal with the location of public facilities.

Remarkably, more than half of the world's population now lives in cities, and the numbers grow daily as people abandon rural areas. This fully updated and revised fifth edition of the classic text offers readers a comprehensive set of tools for understanding the urban landscape, and, by extension, the world's politics, cultures, and economies. Providing a sweeping overview of world urban geography, a group of noted experts explores the eleven major global regions. Each author presents the region's urban history, economy, culture, and society, as well as urban spatial models and problems and prospects. Environmental, human security, globalization, and cyberspace topics are fully developed as well. Vignettes of seventy-eight key cities give the reader a vivid understanding of daily life and the "spirit of place." An introductory chapter presents an overview of key terms and concepts, and a concluding chapter projects the world's urban future. Liberally illustrated with a new selection of photographs, maps, and diagrams, the text also includes a rich array of textboxes to highlight key topics ranging from gender and the city to Islamic fashion and global warming. Bibliographic sources, websites, and an appendix of UN data provide additional resources for helping students understand more about the urban world. Clearly written and timely, Cities of the World will be invaluable for those teaching introductory or advanced classes on global cities, regional geography, and urban studies.

This book discusses Bangladesh’s economic and social development that may be called a “miracle” since the country has achieved remarkable development progress under several unfavorable situations: weak governance and political instabilities, inequality, risks entailed in rapid urbanization, and exposure to severe disaster risks. The authors examine what led to this successful economic development, and the potential challenges that it presents, aiming to elicit effective policy interventions that can be adapted by other developing countries.

With the rapid growth in urban poverty in Africa, Asia and Latin America, most cities now have 30 to 60 per cent of their population living in shanty towns. The civil and political rights of these people are either ignored or constantly contravened. They face multiple deprivations, including hunger, long hours working for inadequate incomes; illness, injury and premature deaths that arise from dangerous living conditions and inadequate water supplies, sanitation and healthcare. Many face the constant threat of eviction and other forms of violence. None of these problems can be addressed without local changes, and Empowering Squatter Citizen contends that urban poverty is underpinned by the failure of national governments and aid agencies to support local processes. It makes the case for redirecting support to local organizations, whether governmental, non-governmental or grassroots. . The book includes case studies of innovative government organizations (in Thailand, Mexico, Philippines and Nicaragua) and community-driven processes (in India, South Africa, Pakistan and Brazil), which illustrate more effective approaches to urban poverty reduction. Such approaches include strengthening the organizations of the poor and homeless so that they are accountable to their members, are able to develop their own solutions and have more capacity to negotiate with the institutions that are meant to deliver infrastructure, services, credit and land for housing. Such support for local processes is crucial for meeting the Millennium Development Goals in urban areas.

Originally published in 1989. In this book Nicholas Xenos argues that the assumption that scarcity is a universal human condition is far from universal but rather a product of western influence. Informed by the work of Baudrillard, Bourdieu, Girard, and Sahlins, this historical narrative of scarcity incorporates interpretations of texts and practices from eighteenth-century London to contemporary New York. Lucid and elegant in style, Scarcity and Modernity will appear to those with interests in social and political thought and cultural criticism.
