|Title:||Sustainable Urban Development: Volume 1: The Framework and Protocols for Environmental Assessment|
|Authors:||Steven Curwell, Mark Deakin and Martin Symes|
|Description:||This volume is the first in a new series: Sustainable Urban Development. The aims of this first volume are to: outline the concept of sustainable urban development (SUD) and examine the protocols to be followed in carrying out environmental assessments and evaluating the sustainability of urban development. Published together with this volume, Sustainable Urban Development: The Framework and Protocols for Environmental Assessment, will be a second volume in the series, examining how environmental assessment methods are currently being used to evaluate the sustainability of urban development. This second volume will appear as Sustainable Urban Development: The Environmental Assessment Methods. Accompanying these volumes will be a third, Sustainable Urban Development: A Toolkit for Assessment, providing integrated examples of best practice in evaluating the sustainability of urban development. These three volumes are based on research undertaken by a network of academics and practitioners, known as the BEQUEST (Building Environmental QUality Evaluation for SusTainability) Network, and supported, in part, by a grant from the European Commission (ENV4-CT97–0607).|
