    Modern urbanism is called to face current challenges ranging from intensive demographic growth, economic and social stagnation to resources salvation and climate changes. Under the broader scope of sustainability, we argue that the transition to a holistic perspective of smart and regenerative planning and design is the way to face and yet to prevent these urban challenges. In doing so, we adopt systematic thinking to study the complexity of urban metabolisms at an urban place scale, emphasizing the ongoing coevolution of social-cultural-technological and ecological processes.

    Following the example of Tiffen et al. on Machakos, Kenya, new macro-based evidence was collected in Machakos, the neighbouring Kitui district and in Benin, Cameroon and the Philippines, to assess the factors à la Boserup, inducing transitions towards sustainable land management, such as terracing, stone bands etc. We find that relative scarcity of land can be seen to induce technical changes, in the sense of Hayami & Ruttan, that correspond to the new relative scarcity, making higher man-land ratios the optimal choice.

    Transitional shelter can play a crucial
    role in housing reconstruction following a mega disaster.
    Reconstruction of permanent housing cannot move forward
    until a number of complex issues are settled, such as
    relocation planning and removal of debris. Even after plans
    are agreed on and reconstruction begins, it may take several
    years for permanent housing to be completed. In this
    context, affected people may need to rely on transitional

    This report presents to the Government
    of Georgia (GoG) an analysis of the implications of
    potential policy changes to internally displaced person
    (IDP) assistance. A pressing question for policy makers in
    Georgia is the sustainability of status-based IDP assistance
    and what efforts can be made to tailor this assistance to
    favor the poor and vulnerable. Elimination of the IDP
    benefit has been subject to debate among policymakers. The

    The livelihoods of communities in rural
    areas of Peru are predominantly dependent on
    climate-sensitive sectors such as agriculture. Given their
    close connection with the environment, the understanding of
    how these communities perceive risks and how they adapt to
    and cope with climate hazards is important for identifying
    entry points for efforts aimed at building resilience. In
    this context, it is assumed that the successful use of

    Climate-induced livelihood transitions in the agricultural systems of Africa are increasingly likely. There is limited evidence on what such transitions might look like. We carried out fieldwork in 12 sites in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda to understand changes in farming systems in the recent past, and to test the hypothesis that sedentary farmers in zones that may become warmer and drier in the future may be forced to increase their reliance on livestock vis-à-vis cropping in the future. We estimated the contribution of crop and livestock activities to incomes, food security and poverty.

    Burkina Faso

    The present study aimed to detect the main shifts in land-use architecture and assess the factors behind the changes in typical tropical semi-arid land in Burkina Faso. Three sets of time-series LANDSAT data over a 23-year period were used to detect land use changes and their underpinning drivers in multifunctional but vulnerable ecologies. Group discussions in selected villages were organized for mapping output interpretation and collection of essential drivers of change as perceived by local populations. Results revealed profound changes and transitions during the study period.

    Various countries have made significant progress in translating climate ambition into national action through legislation and policies addressing adaptation and mitigation. There is, however, a gap in the translation of national policies into local actions. Bridging this divide requires developing the capacity of technical officers and policymakers at multiple scales, including at the subnational and local community levels, to facilitate effective policy implementation.
