Urban Planning throughout environmental quality and human well-being
The cities of today present some requirements that are not similar to the past. There are cities that the industrial and service sectors are in decline; others begin their journey into the technological and industrial sector. In general, politically and socially are restructured in terms of its economy, which results in an entirely different shape to their primitive structures. As people begin to understand the dynamic nature of landscapes, they will change the way they see the landscape as a static scene. Sustainable cities must be simultaneously economically viable, socially just, politically well managed and ecologically sustainable to maximize human comfort. The present research suggests a multi-disciplinary approach for a holistic understanding of urban environmental quality and human well-being in sustainable urban development.
