About this book

This book explores key theoretical and empirical issues related to the development and implementation of planning strategies that can provide guidance on the transition to climate-compatible and low-carbon urban development. It especially focuses on integrating resilience thinking into the urban planning process, and explains how such an integration can contribute to reflecting the dynamic properties of cities and coping with the uncertainties inherent in future climate change projections.

Some of the main questions addressed are: What are the innovative methods and processes needed to incorporate resilience thinking into urban planning? What are the characteristics of a resilient urban form and what are the challenges associated with integrating them into urban development? Also, how can the resilience of cities be measured and what are the main constituents of an urban resilience assessment framework? In addition to addressing these crucial questions, the book features several case studies from around the world, investigating methodologies, challenges, and opportunities for mainstreaming climate resilience in the theory and practice of urban planning.

 Featuring contributions by prominent researchers from around the world, the book offers a valuable resource for students, academics and practitioners alike.

About the authors

Yoshiki Yamagata graduated from the University of Tokyo (PhD in System Science). Since 1991, he works at the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES, Tsukuba). Currently, he is studying about the climate risk management as Principal Researcher of Center for Global Environmental Research (CGER). He is also affiliated with IIASA (Vienna) and Institute of Statistical Mathematics (ISM, Tokyo). His recent research topics include: Land use scenarios, resilient urban planning and International regime networks. He has lecture series at the University of Tokyo, University of Tsukuba and Hokkaido University. Internationally, he has served as Lead author of IPCC, Steering committee of “Global Carbon Project” and Editorial board of “Applied Energy” etc.

 Ayyoob Sharifi is a research associate at the Center for Global Environmental Research, National Institute for Environmental Studies and also one of the two Executive Directors of the Global Carbon Project (GCP), a Future Earth core project. As part of his duties as the executive director of the GCP, he is leading the urban flagship activity of the project which is focused on conducting cutting-edge research for supporting climate change mitigation and adaptation in cities. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering (Surveying), a master’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning, and a doctorate in Environmental Engineering. Ayyoob is interested in pursuing research at the interface of climate change and urban planning. The ultimate goal of his research is to provide further insights into how to develop sustainable and resilient urban communities. He is also interested in developing assessment tools that can be used as decision support systems at the local scale.
