The decisions of public and private sector actors must incorporate sustainable development considerations. Doing so, however, requires the ability to model these same considerations, as well as the impacts of a particular policy or project. The design and choice of these models is crucial, and must involve a holistic approach that brings together the various actors and interests involved. These models must also be able to meet decision-maker's needs and inform decisions that contribute to sustainable development. To support this need for better-informed decision making, this book brings together the insights and expertise of a dozen expert modellers and policy analysts. It is designed for decision-makers, model commissioners, model developers, model users, and students specialising in modelling and/or the different aspects of sustainable development.
