Stephanie Pincetl discusses how cities impact resources far and near such as water sources and ecosystems, and how those resources are used in cities, where, by whom, and to do what. She focuses on quantifying those flows, including urban generated wastes like greenhouse gases, and how institutions, regulations and rules shape the ways the flows are appropriated, and how cities are built (including infrastructures) and organized.
