Sustainable Rural and Urban Ecosystems: Design, Implementation and Operation. Manual for Practice and Study.

The experiences of the Ecological Engineering Society IÖV and of it´s members for designing and handling rural and urban ecosystems are summarized in this manual for practice and study. It also contains the findings of the more than 10 years of IÖV-projects at the Ghana-based ValleyView University, where IÖV helped to establish a real holistic ecosystem and university. The approach, methods, examples and the toolbox may assist to design, implement and operate such kind of systems accompanied by an integrated mass, quality and information management.
