This book explores the relationship between urban form and greenhouse gas emissions in China, providing new insights for policy, urban planning and management. Drawing on the results of a four-year multidisciplinary research project, the book examines how factors such as urban householdsa€™ access to services and jobs, land use mixes and provision of public transport impact on greenhouse gas emissions. The authors analyse data from a wide range of sources including 4677 sample households from four major Chinese cities a€“ Beijing, Shanghai, Wuhan and Xia€™an a€“ with diverse locations, urban spatial structures and population sizes. The book explores residentsa€™ attitudes to reducing GHG emissions and advances knowledge relating to three environmental scales a€“ cross-metropolitan, intra-city and neighbourhood level.
