FR3.40.13 The Role of Public Decision Making in Urban Sustainability

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over the past two decades, local communities around the world have sought new ways to become more sustainable. Increased social and political demand for sustainability in recent years has only served to increase this desire. This session focuses on a notable part of that demand--the public’s decision making process--and its impact on the sustainability of urban systems. Case studies will examine issues of parks, food, water, and disaster management in an attempt to contextualize public decision making in a larger context of sustainability. Cases will be drawn from multiple locations in both the developed and developing worlds, including the Southeastern United States and East Africa. Comparisons will be drawn between the case studies, and speakers will draw conclusions on the impact and significance of public decision making from these comparisons.
