Ailing Cities

Ailing Cities is a book written largely to educate and facilitate a dialogue with people of all backgrounds on environmental sustainability, architecture, urban planning, and design. It has been necessitated by urban ills in Ghana and other sub–Saharan African countries. Urbanization has led to the creation of informal settlements within communities in sub-Saharan countries that are most vulnerable to the effects of climate change, coupled with the lack of enforcement of planning and building laws that have resulted in spatial chaos and vegetative depletion. Ailing Cities addresses relevant topics essential to give the reader an understanding of how individuals and communities can bring lasting changes to their communities.
