Description

This book seeks to clearly identify 21st century challenges to Australia's cities and regions that flow from global influences such as a resource-constrained world (oil, water, food, skilled labour, materials) and a carbon-constrained world (linked to climate change and a need to transition to renewable energy) and identify potential solutions to these critical problems and vulnerabilities.
