Cities in a globalizing world : global report on human settlements 2001 by United Nations Centre for Human Settlements( Book )

30 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Global Report 2001 is an assessment of the world's cities and a tool and reference for academics, researchers, planners and public authorities and civil society organizations around the world. The 2001 Report highlights the impacts of globalization in removing barriers and increasing the influence of market forces on policies and city development, the increased isolation and marginalization of many, especially poor and vulnerable social groups. It documents current housing and urban conditions, including access to health care and education, and examines policies and initiatives for improved quality of life across all sectors of urban society."--Jacket
An urbanizing world : global report on human settlements, 1996 by UN-Habitat (Nairobi)( Book )

14 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An Urbanizing World is the most comprehensive review of conditions and trends in cities and other settlements around the world and of the urbanization process through which more than half the world's population will soon live in urban centres. Prepared by Habitat (the United Nations Centre for Human Settlements) the book shows the positive and negative side of cities." "Drawing from thirty specially commissioned papers from leading specialists in both North and South and on data from recent censuses, it shows how the growth in urban population has slowed in most parts of the world, while the scale of urban poverty has been underestimated. The book also describes what is being done to address the problems of poor housing and environmental degradation." "The main conclusion of An Urbanizing World is the importance of good governance in cities. It describes how cities have great potential to combine healthy and safe living conditions, cultural riches, and environmental advantages. It also provides illustrative case-studies of cities where poverty, very poor housing conditions and lack of basic services have been tackled, environmental performance much improved and dependence on motor cars reduced."--Jacket

Preparing for the urban future : global pressures and local forces( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More and more of the world's people live in urban areas, which share the same problems: unemployment, corroding infrastructure, deteriorating environment, a collapsing social compact, and weakening institutions. To ask why this is happening and what can be done, twenty-two leading social scientists and experienced public officials have pooled their experience and their research in preparation for the June 1996 United Nations conference on human settlement in Istanbul. Their collaborative effort is published in Preparing for the Urban Future: Global Pressures and Local Forces. The contributors find commonalities in the globalized economy in which all cities compete and in the mixes of squalor and splendor found in urban environments east and west, north and south. But common, too, in these accounts, are local, rather than national, solutions to urban challenges, which local community groups often view in purely local terms
