Integrated urban development

  • cooperation

This working group works to improve integrated urban development, planning and governance through peer review exchanges


A study, ‘Integrated urban development - a prerequisite for urban sustainability in Europe’ was published in 2007 in the context of the Leipzig Charter on Sustainable European Cities.

The study calls for integrated urban development, which is described as ‘an essential pre-requisite in order to face the many challenges with which today cities all over the world are confronted. Integration is, however, a challenging task to put into practice’, in the Manual on Integrated Urban Governance.

Objectives for 2016:

Continuation of the project ‘Edge-of-centre transformation’ led by the City of Oslo in collaboration with the WG IUD. The project started in March 2015 and focuses on major transformation strategies in edge-of-centre areas of cities. The experts from participating cities take part in a series of exchange/peer study visits.
