Sustainable Social, Economic and Environmental Revitalization in Multan City
A Multidisciplinary Italian-Pakistani Project
Editors: Adalberto Del Bo and Daniele Fabrizio Bignami 
Publisher: Springer, 2014
The book describes six months of initial intensive activities within a motivating multidisciplinary project to achieve sustainable social, economic, and environmental revitalization in the historic core of Multan City, Pakistan. The project is managed by Fondazione Politecnico di Milano within the framework of the "Pakistan-Italian Debt for Development Swap Agreement” and has five components: a livelihood improvement program, a living conditions improvement program, revitalization of physical assets, establishment of a Pakistan-Italian resource centre at Multan, and an Italian collaboration program for training and capacity building.
All aspects are covered in this book, which provides a comprehensive account of progress in this excellent example of cross-cultural cooperation between a Western and an Eastern country in regenerating an historic populated site.

The book is published by Springer and it is the first title of the series 'Research for Development', a new collaboration between Fondazione Politecnico di Milano and the publisher. The series will serve as a vehicle for the presentation and dissemination of complex research and multidisciplinary projects. The published work will be dedicated to fostering a high degree of innovation and to the sophisticated demonstration of new techniques or methods. Fondazione as a special co-partner of Springer will suggest themes and evaluating proposals for new volumes.
