In Planning for the Future, "Integration Is A Key Means of Moving Towards Sustainability"

Jonna McKone details her case for integrated, systematic approaches to problems in the realms of urban mobility and sustainability. Can seamless connectivity between sectors such as planning, business, and energy create better long-term solutions?

McKone establishes a link between the interconnectedness of major sectors such as business and energy and solid, long-term solutions to planning issues that are currently faced by the world's largest cities. Her analysis is based on the first segment of a new report titled 'Megacities on the Move,' which was authored by the London-based Forum for the Future in partnership with several other foundations and corporations.

According to McKone,

"A truly integrative system of transportation in cities looks first at people and quality of life. In planning for the future, as population grows and environmental issues become more acute, integration is a key means of moving towards sustainability in the world's largest cities."
