520    "Superstorm Sandy sent a strong message that a new 
       generation of urban development and infrastructure is 
       desperately needed, and it must be designed with 
       resilience in mind. As cities continue to face climate 
       change impacts while growing in population, they find 
       themselves at the center of resilience and green city 
       solutions, yet political and budgetary obstacles threaten 
       even the best-planned initiatives. In The Guide to 
       Greening Cities, seasoned green city leaders Sadhu 
       Johnston, Steven Nicholas, and Julia Parzen use success 
       stories from across North America to show how to turn a 
       green city agenda into reality. The Guide to Greening 
       Cities is the first book written from the perspective of 
       municipal leaders with successful, on-the-ground 
       experience working to advance green city goals. Through 
       personal reflections and interviews with leading municipal
       staff in cities from San Antonio to Minneapolis, the 
       authors share lessons for cities to lead by example in 
       their operations, create programs, implement high-priority
       initiatives, develop partnerships, measure progress, 
       secure funding, and engage the community. Case studies and
       chapters highlight strategies for overcoming common 
       challenges such as changes of leadership and fiscal 
       austerity. The book is augmented by a companion website, 
       launching with the publication of the book, which offers 
       video interviews of municipal leaders, additional case 
       studies, and other resources. Rich in tools, insights, and
       tricks of the trade, The Guide to Greening Cities helps 
       professionals, policymakers, community leaders, and 
       students understand which approaches have worked and why 
       and demonstrates multidisciplinary solutions for creating 
       healthy, just, and green communities."--|cProvided by 
520    "The Guide to Greening Cities tracks the growth and 
       structure of municipal efforts and outlines the most 
       exciting and significant shifts underway in the greening 
       of our cities from the perspective of insiders. Drawing 
       from their own experience and that of other leading 
       practitioners, the authors provide a rich portrait of the 
       green city movement in North America - a guide, replete 
       with case studies, insights, tips, tools, and "tricks of 
       the trade.""--|cProvided by publisher.
