Towards More Sustainable Urban Growth Through a Data-Driven Framework for Modelling, Planning, and Control

PEAK Briefing

This research briefing highlights the value of using a data-driven urban-growth framework to predict the impact of certain administrative and political decisions in the long-term expansion, or densification, of a city.

When the framework is used as part of the urban planning cycle, it provides an avenue for decision-making that supports sustainable growth. For other urban stakeholders such as utility companies and real-estate developers, the framework can provide valuable planning insights for future demand of services and infrastructure.
