Developing indicators of urban sustainability : a focus on the Canadian experience by Virginia White Maclaren( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Having identified sustainability as an important goal, municipalities and other levels of government are turning to the issue of how to measure a community's progress towards achieving this goal. This report seeks to establish a methodology for developing sustainability indicators. It begins with a discussion of alternative definitions of urban sustainability and then describes some of the general characteristics of indicators and indices. Following a brief investigation of the meaning of sustainability indicators, several potential indicator frameworks are examined, including those which could be adapted from the work on state of the environment reporting, quality of life reporting, and healthy city reporting. Next, more detailed attention is given to appropriate criteria for identifying sustainability indicators and to the steps to be followed in applying those criteria. A number of examples of potential indicators are then described and evaluated against the criteria. Finally, detailed case studies of urban sustainability reporting are presented as well as a brief description of sustainability reporting projects in British Columbia
The compact metropolis : growth management and intensification in Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal by Ray Tomalty( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report uses a case study approach to explore growth management and intensification policy issues in the three largest metropolitan regions in Canada. It begins with an overview of the compact city concept, its benefits, and its challenges (social, environmental, economic). Case studies are then presented for the Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal regions. Each study attempts to: identify the full range of government agencies at all levels that have adopted policies to promote growth management or housing intensification; survey those policies; determine the degree to which the policies are linked between various levels of government; relate the policies to the policy context; and assess whether individual policies and the policy framework taken as a whole are likely to be effective in promoting growth management and intensification. The concluding chapter synthesizes the findings of the case studies, makes some observations on general issues, and offers comments on provincial, metropolitan, and municipal planning
