Integrated Urban Development

Integrated Urban Development

The integrated approach to urban development encourages growth and jobs throughout Europe, and at the same time promotes a more cohesive society and better environment.

It is a core approach of the Europe 2020 strategy in which European cities act as the motors for regional growth, innovation and employment creation. It is crucial that towns and cities of all sizes improve the quality of life for citizens and at the same time reduce the environmental footprint. 

Economic development can only be sustainable when it is accompanied by measures designed to reduce poverty, social exclusion and environmental problems. The new economy needs to be more circular, more inclusive and more just.
