Transitions Pathways Towards Sustainable Urban Development in Australia by P. W Newton( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 46 libraries worldwide
"Formidable challenges confront Australia and its human settlements: the mega-metro regions, major and provincial cities, coastal, rural and remote towns. The key drivers of change and major urban vulnerabilities have been identified in the 2006 Australia State of Environment Report as well as several other national-level reports (Sustainable Cities 2005). Principal among them are a resource-constrained world (oil, water, food, skilled labour, materials) and a carbon-constrained world (linked to climate change and a need to transition to renewable energy) both of which will strongly shape urban development this century compared to the last. This book seeks to clearly identify 21st century challenges to Australia’s cities and regions that flow from these global influences and identify potential solutions to these critical problems and vulnerabilities. The solutions will require fundamental transitions in many instances: to our urban infrastructures, to our institutions and perhaps most of all to ourselves in terms of our lifestyle activities and consumption patterns. The book is about outlining pathways to the future in each area."--Provided by publisher

Resilient sustainable cities : a future by Peter W Roberts( Book )
6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
"Urbanization is occurring at an unprecedented rate; by 2050 three quarters of the world's people will live in urban environments. The cars we drive, products we consume, houses we live in and technology we use will all determine how sustainable our cities will be. Bridging the increasing divide between cross-disciplinary academic insights and the latest practical innovations, Resilient Sustainable Cities provides an integrated approach for long term future planning within the context of the city as a whole system. On the next thirty years cities will face their biggest challenges yet, as a result of long-term or 'slow-burn' issues: population growth will stretch to the breaking point of urban infrastructure and service capacity: resource scarcity, such as peak oil, potable water and food security, will dramatically change what we consume and how; environment pressures will change how we livre and shere; and shifting demographic preference will exacerbate urban resource. Cities can't keep doing what they've always done and cope-we need to change current urban development to achieve resilient, sustainable cities"--Couverture page [4]
