About this book

The importance of urban environmental management in the face of formidable challenges is being increasingly highlighted. This book offers a comprehensive overview of science and policy, with discussion of relevant traditional and contemporary technologies. Considering the complexity of urban environmental management, the book deals with environmental media such as water, waste, and energy from the individual building level to regional and global levels.

In three major sections - Water Environment, Material Flow and Risk, Heat and Energy Management - environmental issues, policy needs, and countermeasures from currently available and newly developing technologies are addressed. Authors from a broad spectrum of disciplines, including civil engineering, architecture, and urban environmental engineering, bring together their different perspectives to make this book the first to deal with urban environmental management in a truly holistic manner. For this reason it is well suited to the needs and interests of undergraduate and postgraduate students, academic researchers, policy makers, urban planners, and private practitioners.
