Superstorm Sandy sent a strong message that a new generation of urban
development and infrastructure is desperately needed, and it must be
designed with resilience in mind. As cities continue to face climate
change impacts while growing in population, they find themselves at the
center of resilience and green city solutions, yet political and
budgetary obstacles threaten even the best-planned initiatives. In The Guide to Greening Cities,
seasoned green city leaders Sadhu Johnston, Steven Nicholas, and Julia
Parzen use success stories from across North America to show how to turn
a green city agenda into reality.
The Guide to Greening Cities
is the first book written from the perspective of municipal leaders
with successful, on-the-ground experience working to advance green city
goals. Through personal reflections and interviews with leading
municipal staff in cities from San Antonio to Minneapolis, the authors
share lessons for cities to lead by example in their operations, create
programs, implement high-priority initiatives, develop partnerships,
measure progress, secure funding, and engage the community. Case studies
and chapters highlight strategies for overcoming common challenges such
as changes of leadership and fiscal austerity. The book is augmented by
a companion website, launching with the publication of the book, which
offers video interviews of municipal leaders, additional case studies,
and other resources.
Rich in tools, insights, and tricks of the trade, The Guide to Greening Cities
helps professionals, policymakers, community leaders, and students
understand which approaches have worked and why and demonstrates
multidisciplinary solutions for creating healthy, just, and green
