A current COST Action (CS Urban Infrastructure and Sustainability) is collecting fifty case studies from thirteen EU countries covering water/sewage, waste, transport, energy networks, green areas and holistic urban studies. The work has identified a lack of structured evaluation procedures and benchmark data which makes it difficult to assess the benefits of a project, its full socio-economic impact and how it might be transferred elsewhere. PETUS will develop and test practical evaluation tools that will enable public and private sector organisations to develop and manage urban infrastructure projects to promote sustainable development. The tools will include decision-making and public participation processes. The project team is drawn mainly from members of the COST action group.
