Carbon Footprint and Urban Planning

Incorporating Methodologies to Assess the Influence of the Urban Master Plan on the Carbon Footprint of the City

This book analyzes the relationship between urban
development, greenhouse gases and the carbon footprint, and presents the main
preventive measures that can be implemented at the design stage. Readers are
provided with the knowledge needed to devise a strategy for calculating the
carbon footprint of urban planning instruments, as well as a framework for
integrating sustainability into the planning phase. Highlighting the importance
of preventive and corrective measures, the book includes practical suggestions
on how to meet sustainability requirements in urban planning designs, exploring
undeveloped land reserves, urban-project design and infrastructure design, and
offers a springboard for further research.
