Chapter 15: Sustainable development planning and DSS tools: what’s next?

M.A.B. Siddique and M.A. Quaddus


With the publication of The Limits to Growth in 1972, Our Common Future in 1987 and Agenda 21 in 1993, model-based systems have continued to play an important role in sustainable development planning. However, very few attempts have previously been made to publish a book containing articles in this increasingly important area. Although fragmented applications of these model-based systems in sustainable development planning have appeared in the literature, we strongly believe that many more applications of such systems have not been reported. This book is a modest attempt to publish the contributions from scholars who have dedicated their research efforts to this topic.
