This quantity exhibits how you can untangle, diagnose, and rework city areas via detailed thematic contributions throughout numerous educational disciplines starting from environmental engineering and geography to panorama ecology and concrete making plans. Case reviews, chosen from internationally and investigating city areas in East Asia, Europe, North the US and South-East Asia, jointly illustrate shared and differentiated drivers of sustainability demanding situations and supply informative inputs to international and native sustainability initiatives.

These numerical dimensions thus present a basic challenge to the management of the urban transition. In the light of the preceding discussion it is possible to imagine two very different futures for the cities of Asia.
