More Information
The thoroughly revised second edition of this authoritative Handbook, complete with new chapters, comprehensively examines the current status and future directions of model-based systems in decision support and their application to sustainable development planning.

The Handbook presents a full review of model-based applications in sustainable development planning, paying particular attention to environment disaster, ecosystem management, energy, infrastructure development, and agricultural systems, amongst other contemporary issues. Conceptual and policy oriented papers debate the future directions of model-based sustainable development planning.

Given the rise in prominence of sustainable development planning in recent years, this Handbook will be invaluable to a wide-ranging audience including NGOs, planners, consultants, policymakers, and academics.
Critical Acclaim
Acclaim for the first edition:

‘The Handbook of Sustainable Development Planning is perfect for readers in different professions who deal with planning and development management. It contains interesting theoretical considerations, provokes discussion, and provides new perspectives for the analysis of sustainable development processes. The cases presented illustrate the complexity of the issues relating to sustainable development and show how modeling can support policy and decision making processes.’
– Miroslaw Grochowski, Geographia Polonica
