Modelling and forecasting of a rational and sustainable development of Vilnius: emphasis on pollution
Life in cities is concentrated mostly in a particular ever-changing environment. Micro, meso, and macro environments have direct impacts on sustainable urban development opportunities and some variable factors can be optimised. These factors may facilitate sustainable urban development or, on the contrary, they may create constraints. This research's aim was to develop a model for rational sustainable development in Vilnius with a special emphasis on pollution by undertaking a complex analysis of micro, meso, and macro environmental factors that affect it and to present recommendations for increasing Vilnius' sustainable abilities.
