In the last two centuries, the concept of urban metabolism has evolve into an awareness and holistic approach in cities (MFA, LCA, Input/Output Analysis etc...) by various multidisciplinary fields (Engineers, Sociologists, Ecologists, Urbanists...) However, a gap remains between urban metabolism outcomes and practical urban planning applications. How can scientists approach this gap?
