Call for Papers: Special Issue “Planning for Resource Efficient Cities” in the Journal of Settlements and Spatial Planning

Background:

Transforming cities' use of resources to address the threats of climate change and resource scarcity is one of the main future challenges in urban development. Striving towards energy self-sufficiency, implementing regional resource cycles, retrofitting of the built environment as well as decoupling urban development and resource use are crucial for a city's future vulnerability and resilience against changes in general resource availability. The challenge gets further complex, as resource and energy efficiency in a city is deeply interwoven with other aspects of urban development such as social structures as well as the geographical context. As cities are the main consumer of energy and resources they are both problem and solution to tackle issues of energy efficiency and saving. Furthermore, through innovation in green technologies and the removing of bottlenecks in network infrastructure, cities can enhance their competitiveness.
This special issue will present research from EU FP7 project PLEEC ('Planning for Energy Efficient Cities', www.pleecproject.eu), but contributions from other research are most welcome!

Deadlines:

  • Deadline for submission of abstracts (max. 300 words): 15 July 2015
  • Deadline for submission of full papers: 15 November 2015
  • Planned publication: February 2016

The Journal of Settlements and Spatial Planning (JSSP) was established in 2010 and is a biannual, peer-reviewed, open access journal, edited by the Centre for Research on Settlements and Urbanism, Faculty of Geography, Babe?-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Very recently it got accepted for indexation in Elsevier's SCOPUS. More details on the journal and author guidelines on http://jssp.reviste.ubbcluj.ro/eng/index.html

The Special Issue "Planning for Resource Efficient Cities" will be guest edited by Niels Boje Groth and Christian Fertner (Department of Geosciences and Natural Resource Management, Section of Landscape Architecture and Planning, University of Copenhagen).
