The latest “Smart and Sustainable Planning for Cities and Regions” conference proceedings – Results of SSPCR 2017 – have been just released and are now available for purchase on Springer’s e-bookshelf here.
Planning urban development in a way that accounts for a territory’s economic, social, environmental and energetic background not only contributes to improve citizens’ quality of life, but also to confront our future climate change challenges by means of innovative smart technological tools. Through a selection of forty-six papers by policy-makers, academics and consultants, the volume highlights current research in smart and sustainable planning, in which climate change adaptation represents just the “tip of the iceberg” defining our current need for a groundbreaking energy transition. Equally relevant towards this transformation are factors as ICTs, public spaces design and social inclusion; new business models for the smart city; strategies and actions for good governance; urban-rural linkages and innovation; rethinking mobility. The book’s depth in understanding and insightfulness in re-thinking demonstrate the breaking of new ground in smart and sustainable planning. A new ground that policy-makers, academics and consultants may build upon as a bedrock for smart and sustainable planning.
