About this book

Spatial planning and climate change are closely intertwined - the effects of irresponsible planning can negatively impact the changing environment, but also conversely with care it can help provide the solutions. The authors examine a wide range of issues and how these problems can be addressed by using a longer-sighted approach to the preparation for the future.
