This book is about cities as engines of consumption of the world's environment, and the spread of policies to reduce their impact. It looks at these issues by examining the impact of the Rio Declaration and assesses the extent to which it has made a difference. Consuming Cities examines this impact using case studies from around the world including: the USA, Japan, Germany, the UK, China, India, Sweden, Poland, Australia and Indonesia The contributors all have direct experience of the urban environment and urban policies in the countries on which they write and offer an authoritative commentary which brings the urban 'consumption' dimension of sustainable development into focus.
'An excellent, upper-level undergraduate text.' - Environment and Planning A
'A rich feast of empirical material on the urban environment to date ... good value for money'' - Cities
'This is a well-conceived and expertly executed book. It adds considerably to the new wave of reflective literature on sustainability. It is a powerful overview of the post-Rio situation, supported in many cases by new data. It is a valuable resource for anyone wanting to gain a global view of differing relationships between sustainability, the economy, society and economics in the 1990s. High quality editing also makes it easy for the reader to make his or her own comparisons of the papers.' - Land Use Policy
