ABSTRACT: Multi-objective sustainability planning in cities must address seven physical provisioning systems that are key to advancing local and planetary well-being. Recent progress in environmental and health footprinting, combined with new frontiers in unpacking infrastructure-well-being relationships, will advance urban nexus science to provide customizable information toward inclusive well-being on a finite planet, one city at a time, across the globe.
