Description

Environmental and sustainability issues are currently stretched by economic concerns and policy areas such as housing and education are therefore needed more than ever to help regenerate the social and urban environment. Governing Sustainable Urban Renewal: Partnerships in Action uses detailed case studies from the UK, Germany and USA to explore the effect of institutional design and modes of governance and evaluates policy outputs, outcomes and best practice. In doing so, it illustrates where power and decision making lies in the delivery of urban renewal initiatives and examines the roles for communities in the governance process. The analysis offers insight into the formation of partnerships and networks that can help to overcome many of the obstacles faced in urban renewal and in the promotion of sustainable development in core urban areas.

Given the increasing commitment of governments throughout the world to renewal as a means for resolving entrenched environmental, social and governance problems, this timely new study should be of interest to students and researchers across a range of disciplines including environment studies, geography, public policy, governance and politics, sustainable development, planning and urban studies.
