Eco-Cities: Scenarios for Innovation and Sustainability (Green Energy and Technology)

en Limba Engleză Hardback – 13 Jun 2021
The aim of this book is to explore the question of how urban sustainability can be achieved despite a lack of knowledge integration between different fields. This book starts from the premise that the battle for sustainability will be won or lost in cities and proposes a critical, up-to-date review of trans-disciplinary knowledge management tools – notably scenario methods for informed decision-making. Drawing from literature and pioneering experience in innovation clusters (university-industry-government) during the last decade, it provides a review of recent eco-city concepts and knowledge management tools for effective decision making in the transition to urban sustainability. Using method outlines, case studies and graphical representations, it is intended to serve as a toolbox for those interested in urban transformation towards sustainability. The challenge of sustainability is unprecedented in the history of humanity. The world population is already predominantly urban and the biosphere is profoundly transformed in ways which we can only partially understand, let alone manage. For example, the International Panel for Climate Change has produced very impressive sets of global climate scenarios, but the consequences for the real-world management remain marginal. This book is intended for city managers concerned with urban transformation towards sustainability, policy-makers, researchers-innovators and technology developers, industry and business professionals, as well as students and the general public.
