*About the book:*
‘Social Sustainability, Climate Resilience and Community-Based Urban
Development: What about the people?
<https://www.routledge.com/Social-Sustainability-Climate-Resilience-and-Community-Based-Urban-Development/Baldwin-King/p/book/9781138478015>‘
looks at the role of urban planning and the design of infrastructure and
public spaces, and participatory community involvement in urban development
in promoting positive community behaviours and states of mind that boost
daily social sustainability and community resilience to climate
change-related adverse weather events and natural disasters in 14 countries
in the global south and north. Countries include India, the USA, South
Africa, Indonesia, the UK, Brazil, and New Zealand. It features a socially
aware planning process and set of evidence-based policy recommendations
which are already being used to guide urban developments in Australia and
Holland.

*Abstract:*
Urban communities around the world face increased stress from natural
disasters linked to climate change, and other urban pressures. They need to
grow rapidly stronger in order to cope, adapt, and flourish. Strong social
networks and social cohesion can be more important for a community’s
resilience than the actual physical structures of a city. But how can urban
planning and design support these critical collective social strengths?

This book offers blue sky thinking from the applied social and behavioural
sciences, and urban planning. It looks at case studies from fourteen
countries around the world – including India, USA, South Africa, Indonesia,
UK, and New Zealand – focusing on initiatives for housing, public space,
and transport stops, and also natural disasters such as flooding and
earthquakes. Building on these insights, the authors propose a “gold
standard”: a socially-aware planning process and policy recommendation for
those drawing up city sustainability and climate change resilience
strategies, and urban developers looking to build climate-proof
infrastructure and spaces.

This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of urban
studies, resilience studies, and climate change policy, as well as
policymakers and practitioners working in related fields
