Description : This book attempts to provide insights into the achievement of a sustainable urban form, through spatial planning and implementation; here, we focus on planning experiences at the levels of local cities and some metropolitan areas in Asian countries. This book investigates the impact of planning policy on spatial planning implementation, from multidisciplinary viewpoints encompassing land-use patterns, housing development, transportation, green design, and agricultural and ecological systems in the urbanization process. We seek to learn from researchers in an integrated multidisciplinary platform that reflects a variety of perspectives, such as economic development, social equality, and ecological protection, with a view to achieving a sustainable urban form.​

Description : This book provides an entirely new and authoritative historical introduction to urban planning in Britain from its origins in the 1890s to the current directions of the 1990s and beyond. The author, an acknowledged expert in planning history, makes extensive use of recent research to provide a highly readable, evocatively illustrated and thoroughly comprehensive account. Three basic themes run through the book: ideas, policies and impacts. The first involves an examination of the origins and development of the major aspects of planning thought. Beginning with the early importance of radical and utopian ideas, the book charts the later advocacy of a comprehensive approach in the 1930s and 1940s, the rise and fall of rational ‘scientific’ planning in the 1960s and 1970s, and the more recent influence of ‘new right’ and green ideas. Second, the importance of ideas in shaping policies is discussed, tracing the growth of the planning system and detailing major policy initiatives. Throughout, the intensely political nature of planning is stressed, with frequent reference to the actions of key ministers, civil servants, local politicians and professional planners. Third, there is an overall assessment of the actual impacts of planning, showing how powerful economic and social forces have interacted with planning intentions in the actual patterns of urban change. Often these have subverted planning ideas so that the spatial, economic and social outcomes have been rather different to those originally intended. The book ends with a call for a renewed planning vision for the 21st century, embracing both the new concerns for sustainable development, and planning’s original, though often forgotten, project for radical reform.

Description : In recent years, much work has been done in formulating and clarifying the concept of sustainable development and related theoretical and research issues. Now, the challenge has shifted to designing and stimulating processes of effective planning and decision-making, at all levels of human activity, in such a way as to achieve local and global sustainable development. Information technology can help a great deal in achieving sustainable development by providing well-designed and useful tools for decision makers. One such tool is the decision support system, or DSS. This book explores the area of DSS in the context of sustainable development. As DSS is a very new technique, especially in the developing world, this book will serve as a reference text, primarily for managers, government officials, and information professionals in developing countries. It covers the concept of sustainable development, defines DSS and how it can be used in the planning and management of sustainable development, and examines the state of the art in DSS use. Other interested readers will include students, teachers, and analysts in information sciences; DSS designers, developers, and implementors; and international development agencies.

Description : The international community has long grappled with the issue of safeguarding the environment and encouraging sustainable development, often with little result. The 1992 Rio Declaration on Environment and Development was an emphatic attempt to address this issue, setting down 27 key principles for the international community to follow. These principles define the rights of people to sustainable development, and the responsibilities of states to safeguard the common environment. The Rio Declaration established that long term economic progress required a connection to environmental protection. It was designed as an authoritative and comprehensive statement of the principles of sustainable development law, an instrument to take stock of the past international and domestic practice, a guide for the design of new multilateral environmental regimes, and as a reference for litigation. This commentary provides an authoritative and comprehensive overview of the principles of the Declaration, written by over thirty inter-disciplinary contributors, including both leading practitioners and academics. Each principle is analysed in light of its origins and rationale. The book investigates each principle's travaux préparatoires setting out the main points of controversy and the position of different countries or groups. It analyses the scope and dimensions of each principle, providing an in-depth understanding of its legal effects, including whether it can be relied before a domestic or international court. It also assesses the impact of the principles on subsequent soft law and treaty development, as well as domestic and international jurisprudence. The authors demonstrate the ways in which the principles interact with each other, and finally provide a detailed analysis of the shortcomings and future potential of each principle. This book will be of vital importance to practitioners, scholars, and students of international environomental law and sustainable development.
