URBAN-NEXUS is working to develop a long term partnership. This partnership will promote collaboration on urban development issues between a wide variety of stakeholders. An important goal is to improve collaboration between researchers and practitioners. Mistra Urban Futures contribution to the project is expertise within issues relating to sustainable land use in cities.
A Strategic Dialogue & Partnership Framework in relation to these key dimensions of sustainable urban development will be developed:
- Urban Climate Resilience
- Health and Quality of Life
- Integrated Urban Management
- Integrated Data and Information
- Competing for Urban Land
URBAN-NEXUS is all about enabling knowledge transfer and dialogue to form long-lasting partnerships in and between cities and regions to deal with integrated sustainable urban development. In order to achieve a sustainable city, a vast range of interconnected issues need to be linked up: these include environment and urban planning, energy, water scarcity, transport, tourism, technology and innovation, governance and education, social equity and cohesion, and sustainable consumption.
