Eco-Urbanisation: Promoting Sustainable Development in Metropolitan Regions of China seeks to extend current knowledge on the connections between urbanisation, resource use and the environment. Focusing on the case study of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Metropolitan Region, the study aims to develop a robust conceptual framework to assess wellbeing in urban communities through a variety of indicators. Drawing on examples of international best practice, the research findings will produce a coherent framework for promoting sustainable urban development in China, with lessons for other countries experiencing similar levels of growth.
