First published in 1998, this collaboration responds to the rapid urbanization of African and Latin American countries and features ideas for sustainable urban development in these areas from specialists in environmental engineering, sustainable cities, urban and environmental planning, air pollution, mega cities and environmental law. Scholarship has explored issues of politics and the economy such as (re)democratization and decentralization, economic conditions and privatization policies imposed by international donors, but the impact of the urban setting of these areas remains understudied despite the major environmental changes brought about by these urban contexts. Environmental Strategies seeks to solve this gap. It will be of particular interest for policy makers and urban planners.
