- Today‘s climate and environmental pr
oblems represent an increasing
challenge for cities, especially for those
that are experiencing
urban expansion and population growth. It is proposed that current
climate and environmental conditions are better understood from a
t of inflows and outflows of energy and material.
This type of evaluation has been carried out
different cities and for
metabolic aspects, but it has been mostly absent in Latin
America. This article starts with a general presentation of the cu
state and challenges for Latin American cities. It then introduces the
main aspects of urban metabolism analysis and offers an initial
comprehensive comparative estimate of inflows and outflows of Latin
American megacities: Mexico City, Sao Paulo,
o de Janeiro and
Some of the main characteristics of climate change
plans are then discussed and a brief comparative analysis between
mitigation actions and existing metabolic dynamics is presented. The
paper concludes with some consideration
s and suggestions for the
urban future and the plausible forthcoming challenges and
