Chapter 5 Policy Points
- A human rights-based approach to the urban environment emphasizes our universal dependence on unadulterated, abundant resources.
- Mainstreaming the notion ‘just sustainabilities’ into urban planning and policies will challenge dominant, outdated preconceptions, while taking in specific local ecological constraints.
- New planning approaches are emerging that offer a range of possibilities to finance environmental action and recognize its valuable contribution beyond purely economic valuation.
- Strengthening multi-level governance approaches is essential to achieving low-carbon cities and raising standards of urban resilience in the future.
