New book (2022) ’Somewhere to Live: Rising to the Global Urban Land and Housing Challenge' (Geoffrey Payne)

Since the planet can no longer sustain unlimited economic growth, and humanity is facing an existential crisis, land and housing have become an expression of this crisis. However, the Covid pandemic has provided a wake-up call to encourage us to change the way we treat both the planet and each other, and many examples exist of innovative, demand-sensitive approaches that provide the basis, not just for meeting the need for land and housing, but for providing a better quality of life. This book shows how to turn a crisis into an opportunity.
