With the ever-increase in urbanization, the environment and its sustainability has become an essential issue in the urban domain. This article aims to identify and cluster drivers affecting the environmental development of Khorramabad city using a strategic-spatial approach. Data were collected through a documentary survey and analyzed in two parts. In the first, land use changes over 31 years were evaluated using geographic information system software ArcGIS 10.2 and ENVI. The second, the paper identified environmental development drivers using a survey method (questionnaire) in the form of targeted sampling, in which, 62 factors affecting the environmental future of Khorramabad city were collected in 5 general dimensions (economic, socio-cultural, institutional and managerial, environmental, and physical). These factors were then structurally analyzed in the form of a 62x62 meta-intersection matrix using MIC MAC software, and finally 10 key drivers with high impact were identified. The findings showed that improving the level of environmental sustainability of Khorramabad city and other cities depends on adopting a long-term strategy with a view on the principles of sustainable development and passing short-term considerations. In short, a suitable environmental development can be achieved with   the spatial-strategic and participation-oriented planning.
