About this Research Topic
This Research Topic reflects on what a resilient urban future might be. It captures theoretical and empirical evidence of how cities, towns, and neighborhoods, how local and global communities, and how knowledge systems could embrace transformation as part of spatial planning and design. To confer resilience in this contemporary landscape calls for a trans-disciplinary approach. This Research Topic invites research from environmental and social disciplines and professions to reflect on best practices to guide the way forward for Resilient Urban Futures, and to align such with the policy agenda of world cities and urban spaces. It will reflect on the vision of Resilient Urban Futures, our status quo and the pathway to future resilience, the challenges, but also the opportunities and innovations to realize and exceed this global goal.
In accordance with our intent to cross disciplines, we are inviting papers that reflect on Resilient Urban Futures, linked to:
• City planning
• Climate action
• Adaptive planning
• Landscape architecture
• Sustainable communities
• Healthy spaces
• Ecological planning
• Spatial thinking
We welcome original research articles, case study research, and review articles from all disciplines and professions that provide a reflection on Resilient Urban Futures.
