Edited by David Simon (Mistra Urban Futures, Royal Holloway – University of London, and UGEC SSC)

Sustainable urbanization has moved to the forefront of global debate, research and policy agendas over recent years. Rapid urbanization throughout China, India and many other low and middle income countries poses new challenges both locally and internationally at a time when urban areas worldwide are threatened by climate/environmental change.

This compact book is designed to make a signal contribution to the sustainable urbanization agenda through authoritative interventions contextualizing, assessing and explaining clearly the relevance and importance of three central characteristics of sustainable towns and cities everywhere, namely that they should be accessible, green and fair.
