Part III discusses underlying changes in energy and resource availability, population, lifestyles, and the economy affecting urban and regional development. Part IV focuses attention on the problems of communities in economic transition. Part V summarizes the efforts and impacts of government at all levels and of the private sector in addressing urban needs. Part VI describes the process followed in developing national urban policy and summarizes the urban policy principles, objectives, and strategies recommended to the President.
