This book is about African and Asian cities. Illustrated through selected case cities, the book brings together a rich collection of papers by leading scholars and practitioners in Africa and Asia to offer empirical analysis and up-to-date discussions and assessments of the urban challenges and solutions for their cities. A number of key topics concerning housing, sustainable urban development and climate change in Africa and Asia are explored along with how policy interventions and partnerships deliver specific forms of urban development. It is intended for all who are interested in the state of the cities and urban development in Africa and Asia. Africa and Asia present, in many ways, useful lessons in dealing with the burgeoning urban population, and the problems surrounding this influx of people and climate change in the developing word.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The Book is made up of 14 chapters which systematically synthesize vast evidences in a logical and coherent manner to tell a compelling story of the impact of climate change on urban centres in Africa and Asia, whilst offering some pragmatic and thoroughly scrutinised thoughts for policy reforms in the two regions. ... I unreservedly recommend this book to academics, students and development policymakers who have interest in the planning and management of the built environment." (Eric Yeboah, African Review of Economics and Finance, Vol. 3 (1), June, 2012)
