Sustaining Cities: Environmental Planning and Management in Urban Design

Planning and development professionals who need to cope with the problems of increasing urbanization will find practical tools in Joseph Leitmann's Sustaining Cities: Environmental Planning and Management in Urban Design. This unique reference explores the highest priority problems -sanitation and drainage, solid waste management, degradation of environmentally sensitive land, uncontrolled emissions, accidents linked to congestion, and improper disposal of hazardous waste, problems that result in poor health, lower productivity, reduced income and quality of life.
