Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Urbanization and urban areas are profoundly altering the relationship between society and the environment. Understanding the existing urban dynamics is aimed at responding to the challenges of creating livable urban futures. The built environment includes human-made buildings and infrastructure stocks that constitute physical, natural, economic, social and cultural capital. Even with elevated scholarly attention, strategies for bridging between research and practice remain elusive, and efforts to understand and affect change toward more sustainable and resilient urban centers in the built environment have often fallen short.

This Special Issue seeks to showcase recent developments, disruptive new concepts, validated simulations and creative applications of urban sustainability and resilience of the built environment. Submissions are expected to focus on urban governance, urban planning, sustainable development and resilience, environmental and hazard governance, climate risk adaptation and mitigation, including energy-efficient solutions, and the built environment in general.

We hope this Special Issue will bring together diverse ideas in the field of urban sustainability and resilience of the built environment, presenting exciting new practices and pointing out future directions for research and development.
