Towards Ecological Sustainable Cities: Strategies, Models and Tools

  • Tjeerd Deelstra

Abstract

Sustainability has become an important political issue since the World Commission on Environment and Development launched Our Common Future. The Commission brought two strands of thought together: the pressure for socio-economic development and the need to limit its harmful impacts on the environment. (World Commission on Environment and Development 1987).
