In an urbanizing world, the majority of people live in urban settlements predominantly on the coastal edge. The focus has historically been on people, place and the challenges and opportunities of living with global change, and academic attention has largely been on sustainability science or sustainable solutions. This book seeks to strengthen the relatively weak link between sustainability science, land use planning, and socio-economic change, and show that a more integrated approach to planning will be required to develop more sustainable pathways for cities and regions in the future. Sustainable Pathways for our Cities and Regions builds on the recent publications on cities and climate change, resilient cities and coasts, and sustainable cities, and looks at how current planning approaches need to be adapted to embrace concepts including green growth, planetary boundaries, healthy cities, and longer-term sustainability.
