Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A very timely and valuable contribution providing an excellent insight into the twin global challenges of cities and climate change. Complex issues are presented with clarity underpinned by leading practice and evidence bringing the opportunities on the ground to life." Professor Barbara Norman, Foundation Chair, Urban and Regional Planning, at the Faculty of Business, Government and Law, University of Canberra, Australia.

"This book will be essential reading not only to those concerned about climate change, but also to everyone interested in the future of cities around the globe. Harriet Bulkeley’s focus on cities brings the complex social struggles about what climate change means in an everyday context and how to respond down to a level where the stakes, the options and the choices become graspable and immediately relevant." Dr Peter H. Feindt, Reader in Environmental Policy, Cardiff University, UK.
