This twice-yearly journal provides researchers, NGO staff and professionals in Africa, Asia and Latin America with the chance to write about their work, present their ideas and debate on issues. It promotes the work of French, Spanish and Portuguese-speaking authors by arranging for the translation of their work into English. It is one of the few journals on Africa, Asia and Latin America where a majority of the authors come from these regions.
Each issue goes to over 2000 universities, teaching institutions, NGOs and individuals in Africa, Asia and Latin America, as well as to over 1,000 subscribers in high-income nations.
Now in its 26th year of publication, Environment and Urbanization is one of the most widely read and distributed journals in its field, helped by its low price, the free subscriptions available to NGOs and teaching/training institutions in the South who find it difficult to obtain foreign exchange (with support from Sida, DANIDA and UK Aid from the UK government), and an active Advisory Board (most of whom are from NGOs and research institutes in Africa, Asia and Latin America). Each issue has a special theme and includes:
- 9-14 papers on that theme
- profiles of innovative NGOs
- papers on participatory tools and methods (since April 1995)
- papers on climate change (since 2007)
- Book Notes — summaries of new books, research reports and newsletters, and how these can be obtained (including those in Spanish, French and Portuguese)
3,100 copies of the most recent issue of Environment and Urbanization were printed.
