Planning After Petroleum: Preparing Cities for the Age Beyond Oil by Jago Dodson

The past decade has been of the most volatile periods in global petroleum markets in living memory, and future oil supply security and price levels remain highly uncertain. This poses many questions for the professional activities of planners and urbanists because contemporary cities are highly dependent on petroleum as a transport fuel. How will oil dependent cities respond, and adapt to, the changing pattern of petroleum supplies? What key strategies should planners and policy makers implement in petroleum vulnerable cities to address the challenges of moving beyond oil? How might a shift away from petroleum, provide opportunities to improve or remake cities for the economic, social and environmental imperatives of twenty-first century sustainability?

Such questions are the focus of contributors to this book with perspectives ranging across the planning challenge: overarching petroleum futures, governance, transition and climate change questions, the role of various urban transport nodes and household responses, ways of measuring oil vulnerability and the effects on telecommunications, ports and other urban infrastructure. This comprehensive volume - with contributions from, and focusing on cities in Australia, UK, US, France, Germany, Netherlands and South Korea - provides key insights to enable cities to plan for the age beyond petroleum.
