What does it mean to be a resilient city in the age of a changing climate and growing inequity? In light of federal inaction on resilience efforts, how do cities create efficient transportation systems, access to healthy green space, and lower-carbon buildings for all citizens? Some of the world’s leading voices on urban issues tackle these questions and more in the fully updated and revised edition of Resilient Cities.
Written by Peter Newman, Timothy Beatley, and Heather Boyer, Resilient Cities, Second Edition is a forward-thinking look at the promise of resilient cities. This edition includes updates to capture recent urban resilience and decarbonization efforts and expand on pressing topics including health and equity. The authors draw from a number of new initiatives and approaches from citizens and all levels of government, including the success of Perth in rethinking mobility options in a car-dependent city and Singapore’s Index on Cities’ Biodiversity, which has been adopted by many cities worldwide.
Resilient Cities, Second Edition is filled with stories, insights, and inspiration for anyone interested in creating more sustainable, equitable, and eventually, regenerative cities. Check out an excerpt from the book and leave any questions about resilient cities in the comments below.
