By Eran Feitelson

Sustainability notions were broadly embraced by means of planners. in spite of the fact that, the query of what can planners give a contribution to the development of such notions has now not acquired a lot cognizance in the past. This quantity examines the capability contribution of making plans to the development of sustainability at sub-national point, and the constraints it faces in doing so. Bringing jointly case reports from the U.S., united kingdom, Poland, Israel, South Africa, The Netherlands and Italy, it covers quite a lot of matters and contexts, starting from the metropolitan to the neighborhood point. at the foundation of those case stories, the publication exhibits that planners do certainly have numerous techniques to improve sustainability notions at those degrees, and seem to be doing so. The publication proposes that planners may still function at degrees: to begin with to alter institutional constructions, and secondly to enhance sustainability notions incrementally meanwhile, in the present institutional constraints.
