Urban Resource Management
The interplay between cities and resources is highly diverse and complex. Some 75% of all natural resources worldwide are consumed in and by cities, and the quality of land, air and water is majorly impaired by harmful emissions, sealing and waste water. Explicitly urban problem-solving approaches are increasingly coming into focus, such as the agricultural use of fallow land, resource recovery from waste, and nature conservation in cities.
