About this book

Sustainable Development and Planning: V contains the proceedings of the latest in a series of biennial conferences on the topic of sustainable regional development that began in 2003. Organised by the Wessex Institute of Technology, the conference series provides a common forum for all scientists specialising in the range of subjects included within sustainable development and planning. It has become apparent that planners, environmentalists, architects, engineers, policy makers, and economists have to work together in order to ensure that planning and development can meet our present needs without compromising future generations.

The topics covered by the papers included in Sustainable Development and Planning: V include: Regional Planning; City Planning; Sustainability in the Built Environment; Cultural Heritage; Environmental Management; Resources Management; Social and Political Issues; Rural Developments; Sustainable Solutions in Developing Countries; Transportation; Container Maritime Transport; Energy Resources.
