Development of Regional Measurement Methods: The Context for Quantifying Influence and Impact
AbstractMany urban areas, in both developed and developing countries, have been subject to the forces of relatively uncontrolled expansion and sprawl. While the political, social and economic drivers of sprawl may not affect urban areas identically around the world, all urban areas rely on suburban, rural, and other less densely settled lands to supply the resources necessary for their existence. Sprawling land patterns have changed the regional balance between land dedicated to resource consumption (urban areas) and resource production (rural areas), a balance essential to the long-term sustainability of human systems.
