Human Settlements and Planning for Ecological Sustainability: The Case of Mexico City (Urban and Industrial Environments), Keith Pezzoli, John Friedmann

Human Settlements and Planning for Ecological Sustainability: The Case of Mexico City (Urban and Industrial Environments), Keith Pezzoli, John Friedmannforeword by John Friedmann PIn many areas of the world, environmental degradation in and around human settlements is undermining prospects for both socioeconomic justice and ecological sustainability. To explore the issues involved in this worldwide problem, Keith Pezzoli focuses on a dramatic instance of conflict that grew out of the unauthorized penetration of human settlements into the Ajusco greenbelt zone, a vital part of Mexico Citys ecological reserve. PThe heart of the book is the story ofwhat happened when residents of the Ajusco settlements fought relocation by proposing that the areas be transformed into productive ecology settlements. Pezzoli draws upon urban and regional planning theory and practice to examine biophysical as well as ethical and social sides of the story, and he uses the Mexican experience to identify planning strategies to link economy, ecology, and community in sustainable development. Обо всём этом и не только в книге Human Settlements and Planning for Ecological Sustainability: The Case of Mexico City (Urban and Industrial Environments) (Keith Pezzoli, John Friedmann)
