The Future of Cities

An Integrated Approach to Urban Challenges

Edited by Aliye P. Celik, Maxinne Rhea Leighton, H. Oner Yurtseven


This book is an effort to look at practical ways to achieve an integrated and cross-sectoral approach to sustainable urbanization. Its objective is to give examples of the best practices that are being used to achieve the UN policies in the area of an integrated approach in the development of cities by the local authorities and the planners as well as designers and managers of cities.

This is a very ambitious objective, and the book hopes to engage stakeholders in a global conversation on the implementation aspects of sustainable urban design and where innovative technologies, including information, communication technologies, and systems are used.
