Cities of the Future is developed from, and includes, the presentations of leading international experts and scholars from the Wingspread International Workshop "Cities of the Future, Bringing Blue Water to Green Cities" 12-14 July 2006, USA. With urban waters as a focal point, this book explores the links between urban water quality and hydrology, and the broader concepts of green cities and smart growth. It also addresses the legal and social barriers to urban ecological sustainability and proposes practical ways to overcome these obstacles. Cities of the Future showcases visionary concepts on how to ensure cities and their water resources become ecologically sustainable; providing clean water for all users and beneficial uses. The book is wide ranging in its scope and content and links North American and Global experience and approaches. The book is a key professional reference that will be of great interest to a wide interdisciplinary audience, including university researchers, consultants, environmental advocacy groups, government departments and legal environmental professionals.
