Developing institutional and social capacity for urban sustainability

Objective

The project objectives are to examine the factors and conditions that permit good governance for urban sust. development in Europ. towns and cities, with an emphasis on identifying and understanding the relationship between institutional development/capacity-building in local government, and social capital formation/capacity-building in civil society. This will be achieved through a 36-month programme, to include a review of capacity building, and a detailed methodological framework, providing the structure for in-depth evaluation of 50 case study local authorities. Outcomes include the production of policy guidance for organising and delivering local sustain- ability, an Evaluation Report, and the development of future Award Guidelines for best practice.
