dc.description.abstractEnglish: The scientific community has to a large extent accepted that climate change is no longer a vague threat but a growing reality attributed to the build-up of greenhouse gas emissions. As urban areas are responsible for a substantial component, these emissions, reducing carbon emissions from cities, can make a significant difference in reducing global emissions. This article examines the nature and extent of greenhouse gas emissions in South Africa, and explores the contribution that spatial planning, land development and regulatory aspects of the land-use management system can make towards achieving lower carbon cities.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: Die wetenskap het grootliks aanvaar dat klimaatverandering nie meer ‘n vae dreigement is nie, maar ‘n werklikheid as gevolg van die vrystelling van kweekhuisgasse. Aangesien stedelike gebiede die oorsprong van baie van hierdie uitlatings is, behoort stede dus die fokus van bekampingsaksies teen die wêreldwye kweekhuisgasvrystellings te wees. Hierdie artikel bespreek die aard en omvang van kweekhuisgasvrystellings in Suid-Afrika en die rol van ruimtelike beplanning, grondontwikkeling en regulatiewe aspekte van die grondgebruikbestuurstelsel in die skep van lae koolstofstede.af
