*Social Sustainability, Climate Resilience and Community-Based Urban
Development*

*What About the People?*

____________________________________________________________________________

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 14 countries
around the world – including India, the USA, South Africa, Indonesia, the
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.

*Reviews:*



"The authors advocate for the importance of social planning and design
through a variety of international case studies that demonstrate community
resilience. They contend that traditional planning approaches often
overlook the significance of social sustainability, which is the basic
ingredient for the health and well-being of communities. This collection
provides valuable insights for architects, planners, policy makers,
community leaders, and students."

*Henry Sanoff, Professor Emeritus of Architecture, North Carolina State
University, USA*

"This timely and creative book links the usually separated fields of urban
resilience and community resilience with community resilience,
sustainability and social justice. It encourages planners, and those who
shape their own settlements, to find ways of supporting the social
processes that underpin community resilience, through the idea of ‘socially
aware planning’."

*Helen Ross**, The School of Agriculture and Food Sciences, The University
of Queensland, Australia*

"As the world becomes increasingly urban, planners, politicians, and social
scientists increasingly direct their attention to the challenges of urban
development, social sustainability, and community resilience. As they do
so, we increasingly categorize urban life economically, sociologically, and
anthropologically. Development, sustainability, and resilience become nouns
– objects to be studied, dissected, and debated. Baldwin and King’s
informative volume reminds us that they are verbs; actions which are never
completed.In doing so they rediscover how people should stand at the center
of our attention when we think about our necessarily urban future."

*Blair A. Ruble**, Woodrow Wilson Center, Washington, USA*

"In a time of uncertainty and contention, this book provides clarity and
hope. Integrating interdisciplinary inquiry with a rich global array of
local experiments, the authors carefully connect, with exceptional
precision and scholarship, potential actions to develop greater human
capacity, social sustainability and resilience for an uncertain, yet
demanding future."

*John Stuart Hall**, Emeritus Professor of Public Affairs, Arizona
State **University,
USA*
