By Mark Roseland
This book is intended for local government officials and citizens who want to apply the concept of sustainable development in their communities. The rationale for writing it is that many of our most critical global environmental issues (e.g., atmospheric pollution and potential climate change) are rooted in local, day-to-day problems (e.g., traffic congestion and inefficient land use patterns). It follows that enlightened local decisions about these issues will be of global as well as local benefit. This book attempts to identify and document municipal and local government initiatives and resources available to help build sustainable communities.
