Beschreibung

This book analyzes the relationship between urban development, greenhouse gases and the carbon footprint, and presents the main preventive measures that can be implemented at the design stage. Readers are provided with the knowledge needed to devise a strategy for calculating the carbon footprint of urban planning instruments, as well as a framework for integrating sustainability into the planning phase. Highlighting the importance of preventive and corrective measures, the book includes practical suggestions on how to meet sustainability requirements in urban planning designs, exploring undeveloped land reserves, urban-project design and infrastructure design, and offers a springboard for further research.



Analyzes the relationship between emissions of greenhouse

gases, carbon footprint, and urban planning

Presents a methodology for calculating the carbon footprint

associated with urban planning instruments

Provides the reader with the knowledge needed to develop and implement preventive measures

Klappentext

This book analyzes the relationship between urban
development, greenhouse gases and the carbon footprint, and presents the main
preventive measures that can be implemented at the design stage. Readers are
provided with the knowledge needed to devise a strategy for calculating the
carbon footprint of urban planning instruments, as well as a framework for
integrating sustainability into the planning phase. Highlighting the importance
of preventive and corrective measures, the book includes practical suggestions
on how to meet sustainability requirements in urban planning designs, exploring
undeveloped land reserves, urban-project design and infrastructure design, and
offers a springboard for further research.
