Spatial Planning and Climate Change PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Spatial Planning and Climate Change free pdf Spatial planning and climate change are closely intertwined - the effects of irresponsible planning can negatively impact our changing environment, but also conversely with care it can help provide the solutions. Wilson and Piper address a wide range of issues in this comprehensive book on the relationship between our changing climate and spatial planning, and how we can address problems by using a longer-sighted approach to our preparation for the future. This text includes: a general round-up of what we know about climate change so far, and what we are set to experience in the future- the role of spatial planning in relation to climate change and the challenges the profession faces in the coming decades- information on legislation from the UN, EU and UK in regard to climate change, and the impact this has on the way planning can be carried out- case studies detailing what responses the UK and the Netherlands have made so far in light of the evidence- and, detailed information about planning to help combat water shortages and excesses, as well as reducing the cost on Earth's biodiversity. The authors take an evidence based look at this hugely important topic, providing a detailed text for those spatial planning professionals who work in the field as well as a useful reference for postgraduate planning, geography and urban studies students.
