This century, the growth and development of many world cities are pushed by an economy that supports sustainable, liveable and wealthy communities through integrated ecological, and socio-economic agendas that encourage human and environmental well-being. Governments nowadays seek efficient methods to manage their nations towards better, more sustainable cities, while also considering socio-ecological limits. A green economy has been proposed as a way to support sustainable development. This paper focuses on the green economy idea and demonstrates how it is applied in urban planning through international case studies, suggests a framework for a green economy and concludes with a set of recommendations for application in Egyptian cities.
