Para divulgação – livro Handbook of Urbanization & Global Environmental Change

Prezados colegas,

 

Gostaria de divulgar a publicação do livro: Routledge Handbook of Urbanization & Global Environmental Change, no qual sou co-autora do capítulo Urban and periurban agriculture: Cultivating urban climate resilience”. 


A obra conta com renomados pesquisadores na área de mudanças ambientais e urbanização e traz uma leitura relevante para todos que se interessam pelas mudanças globais e sua relação com as cidades. O livro fornece uma visão abrangente das interações e feedbacks entre urbanização e mudança ambiental global, tendo como foco principal a análise de como a urbanização influencia a mudança ambiental global, e como a mudança ambiental global, por sua vez, tem influência nos processos de urbanização. É dividido em quatro focos temáticos: O tema 1 aborda os caminhos através dos quais a urbanização impulsiona a mudança ambiental global.  O tema 2 se concentra nos caminhos através dos quais a mudança ambiental global afeta os sistemas urbanos. O tema 3 aborda as interações e respostas dentro do sistema urbano em resposta às mudanças ambientais globais. E o tema 4 enfoca a pesquisa integrativa emergente.

 

O livro está disponível para compra no site da editora Routledge – Talylor & Francis Group e outras livrarias internacionais como a Amazon.
