Cities management and sustainable development: monitoring and assessment approach

New publication by André C.S.Batalhão  & Denilson Teixeira in the journal Urban Ecology on the challenges of sustainable city management and how to measure  progress. Current approaches are fragile and random and create a blurred image of sustainability, leading to unintended consequences. Furthermore, for indicators to be instruments of a process of change for cities, they must combine characteristics that allow the integration and measurement of different dimensions, stimulating stakeholder engagement.
