<b>Sustainable Cities in a Changing Climate</b> <p><b>Build and manage the sustainable cities of the future with this comprehensive guide</b> <p>Climate change is among the biggest challenges facing today’s cities, which are in turn a major factor in driving or mitigating climate change. It is no surprise then that urban planning authorities are under mounting pressure to create cityscapes suited to the 21<sup>st</sup> century. <p><i>Sustainable Cities in a Changing Climate </i>offers a systematic overview of the environmental and sustainability challenges facing urban planners and policymakers, and how to meet those challenges. Beginning with an analysis of how climate change impacts built environments, it proceeds to offer quantitative analysis and practical solutions for strengthening urban resilience. <p><i>Sustainable Cities in a Changing Climate </i>readers will also find: <ul><li> A future-oriented approach that accounts for both known and unknown threats</li> <li> Detailed discussion of threats including environmental changes, global pandemics, natural disasters, and more</li> <li> Case studies from around the globe, including biofuel generation in China and the 2022 World Cup in Qatar</li></ul> <p><i>Sustainable Cities in a Changing Climate </i>is indispensable for environmental engineers, urban planners and policymakers, and advanced students in environmental planning and architecture.
