About this book

Urbanization is on the increase and many modern cities are becoming less able to cope with the increases in population - the results being congestion, pollution, poor housing, noise and inadequate social services amongst others. This book, drawing on documents generated as apart of the CITIES programme of the Commission of the European Communities, brings together the experiences of various European cities which are devising and implementing strategies for sustainable development and growth.

This most broad-based and systematic study of LA21 ever produced offers important lessons and suggestions for the future which will be invaluable in preparations for the Earth Summit 2002 to be held in Johannesburg. -- Warmer Bulletin 84


Sustainable cities - challenge and potential; energy and urban environment in 12 European cities; analysis of the EC's CITIES project.
