Overview

The housing sector is in a prime position to mitigate climate change and make environmentally-friendly cities. Going Green provides an overview of sustainable housing practices with a focus on “green” building materials and construction technologies, and climate-responsive housing and settlement design.

However, improving the sustainability of housing is not only a technical challenge and this book shows how environmental aspects can be successfully interwoven with the social, cultural and economic milieu in which they are proposed, adopted and, ideally, scaled-up to meet the massive housing demand in developing countries.
