Collective insight of key thought leaders in the field, combining theoretical, methodological, and empirical knowledge
Smart Cities, Energy and Climate: Governing Cities for a Low-Carbon Future is a seminal work that draws together representative insights and case studies on this emerging topic, combining and synthesizing important theoretical, methodological, and empirical debates on low-carbon urbanism across a variety of disciplines—including environmental and urban studies, sociology, geography, engineering and politics.
The socio-political background of urban decarbonisation, developments in urban planning, building design, urban-scale technology and digital solutions are discussed and evaluated, based on case studies from cities situated in tropical and temperate regions across the globe.
Key topics covered in this book include:

A conceptual framework to study low carbon cities and resilience through a unified lens
New challenges for cities, like how urban societies can adapt to resource shortage and climate change
Technical and planning practices associated with low-carbon policies, with a special focus on issues of planning and environmental management
Case studies and regional perspectives from Asia, Africa, Europe and Latin AmericaCities, Energy and Climate Governing Cities for a Low-Carbon Future serves as a primary reference for undergraduates and graduates, as well as scholars and policy makers interested in the conceptual, technical, economic, and political challenges associated with the transition towards a more resilient and less carbon intensive urban future.
