A New Strategy of Sustainable Neighbourhood Planning, Five principles - Cover image
Abstract
UN-Habitat supports countries to develop urban planning methods and systems to address current urbanization challenges such as population growth, urban sprawl, poverty, inequality, pollution, congestion, as well as urban biodiversity, urban mobility and energy. The proposed approach is based on 5 principles that support the 3 key features of sustainable neighbourhoods and cities: compact, integrated, connected. These principles are: adequate space for streets and an efficient street network, high density -at least 15,000 people per km², mixed land-use, social mix and limited land-use specialization.
