Abstract

Trends and Indicators for Monitoring the EU Thematic Strategy on Sustainable Development of Urban Environment (TISSUE) belonged to the 6th framework programme area "Integrating and Strengthening the European Research Area". The overall goal of the project was the following: 1. to analyse demand and define appropriate trends which should be measured to properly determine progress towards sustainable development of the urban environment at local level; 2. to carry out comparative research on existing sets of indicators; 3. to define the set-up needed for a harmonised set or subset of indicators; 4. to collect indicators and structure the indicators into a database. TISSUE outlined the urban indicators considering the following main areas: sustainable urban transport, sustainable urban design, sustainable urban construction, sustainable urban management and sustainable urban environment (energy, emissions, air quality, noise, wastes, biodiversity).
