Abstract/Summary

The Encyclopedia of Urban and Regional Futures provides readers (practitioners, academics, researchers etc.) with expert interdisciplinary knowledge on how urban centres and regions in locations of varying climates, lifestyles, income levels, and stages of development are creating synergies and reducing trade-offs in the development of resilient, resource-efficient, environmentally friendly, liveable, socially equitable, integrated, and technology-enabled centres and regions. In particular, The Encyclopedia of Urban and Regional Futures provides readers with expert knowledge on interdisciplinary policies, best practices, lessons learnt, technologies in various stages of development, and case studies of urban centres and regions aiming to decouple economic growth from resource consumption, enhance resilience to climatic extremes, invest in low/zero carbon and smart technologies, lower emissions, reduce economic disparities, improve quality of life, and protect ecosystems and the services they provide for humans and nature.
