The books explores factors calling to move away from a policy of emergency management and from programming characterized by extreme fragmentation: steady reduction in available funds of Public Authorities in the face of consistent size of assets; most attention from citizens/users for the quantity/quality of services for health and public safety, which involves a growing and widespread interest in issues such as water and air quality; rising social and economic costs of management and maintenance services in terms of environmental resources.
