The urbanization process in developing countries is taking on an emergency character in the 21st century. More than 90 percent of growth and new urban areas occur in developing countries, and it is predicted that by 2040 the total of these areas built in developing countries will triple. The economic growth that the urbanization process brings has multifaceted effects and covers more space than the developing regions themselves. Among the different generated impacts, climate change is the one that provides the most advantages for the planet and the quality of life of the population as a whole.
Achieving sustainable development processes where cities, countries, and regions complement and develop, is the challenge to be pursued within the framework of the SDGs.
The construction of programs for sustainable city planning, sustainable development, and management of the city can, together, broaden the objectives and make it possible for different actions and activities to address the local, regional, national, and global scales.
This Special Issue will contribute to the discussion on intervention models applicable to cities as a dynamic vector and management solutions for urban expansion areas to achieve a more inclusive society and without the risk of worsening the phenomena of poverty or effects of unanticipated consequences in decision-making processes.
