In focus of this volume are five emerging megacities and mega-urban regions across the globe. Located in different climatic areas, determined by different economic development conditions and political frameworks each city has to address different local challenges. Based on various case studies and pilot projects, the book shows the early conceptualisation and the further organisation of integrative spatial planning and urban design for sustainable and more energy-efficient urban structures and the adaptation of cities to climate change.
