Making Room for a Planet of Cities

Shlomo Angel, with Jason Parent, Daniel L. Civco, and Alejandro M. Blei

Enero 2011, inglés

This report—the precursor to Planet of Cities—provides policy makers and planners with a conceptual framework for understanding urban expansion and provides research-based suggestions for how to prepare for the sustainable growth of cities in the coming decades.

The data, images, metrics, and methodology from Making Room for a Planet of Cities are available in an accompanying subcenter, the Atlas of Urban Expansion.
