Despite the goal of supporting the three E's (economy, environment, and equity), sustainability plans can fail to reconcile conflicts between smart growth and economic opportunity.

You'll learn about:

  • Conflicts between sustainable-development patterns and social-equity goals
  • Strategies that help reconcile smart growth and economic opportunity
  • Mechanisms that work in different market contexts
  • The politics of implementation
