About this book

Urban Future 21 is the key book on global urban development at the start of the twenty-first century. The distilled result of several years' work by urban professionals, it has been specially written for the World Commission on Twenty-First Century Urbanism, whose report was the subject of a major conference in Berlin in summer 2000. It systematically reviews the main focus guiding urban development, develops two alternative scenarios for the first 25 years of the twenty-first century and outlines an action plan to meet the likely problems.
