Sustainability and resilience perspectives are proclaiming the need of a New Economy, a New Urbanism and a New Mobility. These advances imply deep changes in urban paradigms, namely in the scientific areas of land use, transportation and water planning and management. One requires changes of substantive tenor which consider demand management measures which aim at managing (reduce or reorganize) certain needs (water, energy, new urban space), instead of just satisfying them. These innovated approaches will contribute to reduce the vulnerability of the territories, to conserve natural resources and to avoid environmental pollution. Urban management must contribute to the protection of the atmosphere in the regional and world scales, taking into account, in a complementary way, to the contribution of ecosystems services. The need of reducing the dependence of non-renewable resources is stressed which is one of the requirements to have a climate stability. Disaster risk reduction must be part of urban design and strategies to achieve sustainability and resilience. In these holistic approaches, it is fundamental to develop collaborative and adaptive processes.
