About this book
Volume 1 focuses on environmental impacts of construction on resources such as land, waste, habitat, landscape and human livelihoods. It illustrates these themes with examples ranging from environmental recovery in China to expansion in America; from dams in Asia and Africa to transport links and storage of nuclear waste in Europe, and concludes by setting out the challenges confronting the construction industry in the new millennium.
Volume 2 concentrates on sustainable civil engineering and takes up the challenges laid down to the construction planners by identifying practical construction solutions appropriate to regional and global concepts of sustainable development in all fields of construction and engineering.
A landmark in the world-wide debate on sustainable development.
