1 Review

Written by experts, this volume addresses the growth debate in Southeast Queensland, Australia, where population levels are expected to double over the next 20 years. Key topics explored include structuring growth, preparing for climate change, creating green and sustainable urban centers, integrating transport and infrastructure, and building a relationship between planning and the community. In addition, this analytical account considers how Australians, facing water and housing shortages as well as increasingly problematic traffic congestion, will have to determine how to develop the governance capacity to build on progressive practices.
