The book expresses the global view on climate change in different cities and different countries

The book expresses the global view on climate change in different cities and different countries. It is a collection of articles with case studies. This is an outstanding collection. The book collects a selection of articles, published in Environment and Urbanization between 2007 and 2009, addressing the issue of the adaptation to climate change of cities in middle- and low-income countries. The contributors are scholars in different disciplines and experts working in fields, such as environment, urban planning, social issues and health.

That means quite simply that everything being done today on urban infrastructure, the built environment and social systems, has to be 'future-proofed' in terms of those impacts. The book expresses the global view on climate change in different cities and different countries.
