Gert de Roo and Geoff Porter, Fuzzy Planning, The Role of Actors in a Fuzzy Governance Environment

Published at: 1 January 2011

For example, while almost everyone accepts ‘sustainability’ as an important goal of planning, the actions of the actors involved can render the achieved ‘sustainability’ minimal, or even counterproductive. Putting forward an innovative way of looking at planning problems and policies, this volume suggests actor-consulting is important in addressing the fuzzy nature of planning.
