This report urges planners to incorporate sustainable development objectives into their everyday work. It describes the history, concepts, and theories behind sustainable development; evaluates progress at the global, national, and state levels; and proposes strategies to help planners become more actively involved in local sustainable development programs. Includes case studies of sustainable development initiatives in five communities. Written in a clear, readable style, the guide is further augmented by charts and tables that distill the information into easily understandable pieces. A great resource for responsible planners.
