GLRPPR Sector Resource: Growing Wealthier: Smart Growth, Climate Change, and Prosperity

Title:
Growing Wealthier: Smart Growth, Climate Change, and Prosperity

Abstract:
What is the economic impact of following smart growth strategies? Clearly, the cost per ton of reducing CO2 is not the only consideration. How does this approach affect the bottom line for businesses, household budgets and government balance sheets? Those are the questions elucidated in Growing Wealthier, as the authors also examine quality-of-life concerns beyond traditional economic measures, such as public health and well-being, community vibrancy, thriving ecosystems and global climate protection.
