An Urban Politics of Climate Change: Dr Gareth Edwards' book published

DEV’s Gareth Edwards has had a book published by Routledge.

The book—An Urban Politics of Climate Change—is co-written with Harriet Bulkeley (Durham University) and Vanesa Castán Broto (UCL), and based on an ESRC-funded project (Award Number: RES-066-27-0002).

An Urban Politics of Climate Change provides the first account of urban responses to climate change that moves beyond the boundary of municipal institutions to critically examine the governing of climate change in the city as a matter of both public and private authority, and to engage with the ways in which this is bound up with the politics and practices of urban infrastructure.

The book draws on cases from multiple cities in both developed and emerging economies to providing new insight into the potential and limitations of urban responses to climate change, as well as new conceptual direction for our understanding of the politics of environmental governance.
