Challenges and innovations for sustainable access to good quality drinking water
Goodridge, Amador; Kurt, Zöhre; Nelson, Kara; Smith, Charlotte (2018-12-12)
Water is the main source of life that every single person in the world needs to survive. All Latin- American countries rely on its natural resources; much of the water used in these countries especially drinking water is retrieved from those resources. However, there is a lack of detoxification studies for its water and soil. Contamination due to agricultural activates seems to find its cause in extensive use of pesticide and herbicide which infiltrate through the water from the soil and the contamination k...
Challenges of Safe Urban Speed Management in Developing Countries
Türe Kibar, Funda; Tüydeş Yaman, Hediye (2019-06-20)
Turkey, as one of the middle-income countries, is facing with an increasing motorization in the last decades. This situation also causes a major traffic safety problem on Turkish roads, where 7000+ people lost their lives, and almost 300,000 people get injured annually. When considering factors causing traffic accidents, ‘speed’ is a complex phenomenon which needs to be examined with more attention and different dimensions. This becomes even more problematic in urban regions that face large migration and th...

Management of contaminated sites is a critical environmental issue around the world due to the human health risk involved for many sites and scarcity of funding. Moreover, clean-up costs of all contaminated sites to their background levels with existing engineering technologies may be financially infeasible and demand extended periods of operation time. Given these constraints, to achieve optimal utilization of available funds and prioritization of contaminated sites that need immediate attention, health-ri...

Challenges and conflicts in achieving sustainable communities in historic neighbourhoods of Istanbul
Akkar Ercan, Zübeyde Müge (2011-04-01)
Although urban regeneration has been widely seen as a panacea to resolve the multi-faceted problems of cities over the last two decades, a broad section of literature suggests the need for questioning the impacts of urban regeneration projects as an integral part of neo-liberal policies. In the context of Turkey, by focusing on Istanbul, this article aims to investigate the success of the regeneration initiatives in achieving sustainable communities in deprived historic housing neighbourhoods. After definin...
