Informed Cities: Making Research Work for Local Sustainability
The aim of this publication is twofold: First of all, it is to investigate the links between European
frameworks for local sustainability and the phases of local sustainability management.
It shows that no scheme supports all the management steps in the same way and explains
why applying particular schemes at different points in time may be a wise decision to be
taken by local governments.
The second objective is to describe how the co-operation between policy-makers and researchers
can take place in practice, highlighting strengths and weaknesses and developing a
structured and methodological approach towards designing and implementing policies and
tools for urban sustainability.
