About this book

The 1992 Rio Summit and subsequent literature and debate has focused on `green issues', such as biodiversity, climate change and marine pollution. Much less, however, has been written concerning the `brown' agenda: those issues such as poor sanitation and water quality, air pollution and housing problems, which are particularly prevalent in `Third World' cities. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the brown agenda, with case studies from a number of Southern countries.


Progress with sustainability, empowerment and NGOs, David Satterthwaite; the idea of healthy cities and its application, Trudy Harpham; poverty, health and the environment - lessons from international experience, Gordon MacGranahan; sustainability and sustainable cities, Cedric Pugh; sustainability, economics and the circumstances of high- and low-grade cities, Peter Townroe; sustainability and methodologies of environmental assessment of cities, Eric Jowsey and Jonathan Kellet; conclusions, Cedric Pugh.
