Advancing Sustainability at the Sub-national Level : The Potential and Limitations of Planning Hardback

Edited by Eran Feitelson

Part of the Urban Planning and Environment series

Description

Sustainability notions have been widely embraced by planners.

However, the question of what can planners contribute to the advancement of such notions has not received much attention until now.

This volume examines the potential contribution of planning to the advancement of sustainability at sub-national level, and the limitations it faces in doing so.

Bringing together case studies from the US, UK, Poland, Israel, South Africa, The Netherlands and Italy, it covers a wide range of issues and contexts, ranging from the metropolitan to the community level.

On the basis of these case studies, the book shows that planners do indeed have a variety of options to advance sustainability notions at these levels, and appear to be doing so.

The book proposes that planners should operate at two levels: firstly to change institutional structures, and secondly to advance sustainability notions incrementally in the meantime, within the existing institutional constraints.
