International Manual of Planning Practice
Editors: Judith Ryser and Teresa Franchini
This expanded and updated 6th edition of the IMPP includes the planning paradigms and practices in 135 countries worldwide.
The book is a compendium on planning to practising planners in both the public and the private sector, as well as to other built environment professionals. It also constitutes a reference book for academics and students and provides basic information for planners, developers and investors who intend to operate in countries beyond their own. Besides a succinct background on each country and its planning system, the focus of the Manual is on planning practice. The format is a small book with summary pages of each country and an incorporated USB card with the country profiles as part of this publication.
The IMPP gives readers a comparative overview of planning worldwide provided by experienced practitioners and academics in five continents. The aim of the 135 case studies is to give a comprehensive panorama of the regulated development process and puts it into the perspective of real world experiences. > More
