  2. Synthesize local to global datasets and perform scenario analyses on trade-offs and win-win strategies regarding social, economic, and environmental impacts of household consumption for about 70,000 census tracts in the U.S.;
  3. Provide in-depth development scenarios and social and environmental implications using greater Los Angeles metropolitan area as a case study; and
  4. Provide knowledge brokerage to urban stakeholders and the wider public interested in sustainability issues.
