Today, as cities undergo rapid and dynamic transformations, riddledwith uncertainties about the future, the roles of urban planning andurban planners lie in one of these new crossroad moments. Climatechange, urban migration, social inclusion, health emergencies andfinancial and economic crises have elevated urbanization to newerheights of complexity that can only be tackled by integrating a multitudeof scenarios, strategies and discourses, in order to create an urbanfuture that is resilient and sustainable.

Urban planners have come up with transition proposals and conceptsthat they hope will be able to respond to cities challenges and ultimatelyallow them to adapt and make the transition into more robust urbanareas.This book presents and discusses various urban transition strategies,action plans and programs that have been proposed or even conductedin different countries all over the world. Different countries requiredifferent strategies, but they all have the same goal in mind, each ofthem trying to address urban complexities and cope with the rapid paceat which the world is evolving.
