Bridging the increasing divide between cross-disciplinary academic insights and the latest practical innovations, Resilient Sustainable Cities provides an integrated approach for long term future planning within the context of the city as a whole system.In the next 30 years cities will face their biggest challenges yet, as a result of long term, or slow burn issues: population growth will stretch to the breaking point urban infrastructure and service capacity- resource scarcity, such as peak oil- potable water and food security, will dramatically change what we consume and how- environmental pressures will change how we live and where and- shifting demographic preferences will exacerbate urban pressures.
