In planning for the development and growth of any community, it must be understood that the essential elements of water, energy, food and land resources are all inter-related in complex relationships. With the rapid urbanization and population growth worldwide, the essential elements must be carefully factored in when planning on how to successfully grow and advance communities. This book aims to help the urban and regional planner and the associated civil and environmental engineers use the tools of systems engineering to more accurately forecast and plan for how monies and resources can be best allocated to meet those essential needs. The second volume of this two-volume work will focus on using the engineering tools of system dynamics to better understand, model and plan for community development needs.
