What about the people? The socially sustainable, resilient community and urban development 

By Cathy Baldwin (University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes University) and Robin King (World Resources Institute and Georgetown University) 


What about the people? is a research and policy report about planning and designing public urban built environments to influence community behaviours and psychological states of mind that promote strong networks and cohesion in communities, thus improving their collective ability to adapt to and cope with the effects of climate change and natural disasters. It includes: 


1) Practical and policy case studies from real urban development projects for housing, public spaces and transport stops, and / or environmental disasters situations from the following cities: 


London (England, UK); Delhi and Surat (India); Belfast (Northern Ireland, UK); Cape Town (South Africa); Buenos Aires (Argentina); Christchurch (New Zealand); Portland Oregon (USA); Vancouver (Canada); Adelaide (Australia); Jakarta (Indonesia); The Gulf states of the USA; Manchester (England) 


2) Policy recommendations for urban development stakeholders wanting to implement socially-aware planning for socially sustainable, resilient cities. 


3) A theoretical framework drawing on the social and psychological sciences.
