Cities and Climate Change : urban sustainability & global environmental governance / H. Bulkeley & M. Betsill

£19.99

Product description

This book is in very good condition. The front cover has a 5mm scuff, but otherwise the cover is in excellent condition with very little wear. About half a dozen pages have substantial amounts of pencil underlining, and one of these (in the introduction) has a few marginal pencil notes. A few page numbers in the index are circled. Apart from these markings, the internal pages are in excellent condition - clean and tight.

Climate change is one of the most challenging issues of our time. As key sites in the production and management of emissions of greenhouse gases, cities will be crucial for the implementation of international agreements and national policies on climate change. This book provides a critical analysis of the role of cities in addressing climate change and the prospects for urban sustainability. Cities and Climate Change is the first in-depth analysis of the role of cities in addressing climate change. The book argues that key challenges concerning the resources and powers of local government, as well as conflicts between local goals for economic development and climate change mitigation, have restricted the level of local action on climate change. These findings have significant implications for the prospects of mitigating climate change and achieving urban sustainability. This book provides a valuable interdisciplinary analysis of these issues, and will appeal to students and researchers interested in sustainability at local and global scales.
