Objective

The proposal aims to maximise benefits and add value to the LASALA research project. The target is to improve urban governance and decision-making by setting up a fully automated self-evaluation tool for European local authorities engaged in LA21 processes, and to ensure its wide use amongst participants of the European Sustainable Cities and Towns Campaign. This will be achieved by enhancing the self-assessment module and by developing computer software to move from manual to automatic encoding of data and elaboration of benchmarking reports. The resulting online facility will allow local authorities to self-assess their LA21 activities and to benchmark their individual responses against the LASALA database. The database will be automatically updated with each new reply and this will allow identification of general trends and changing dynamics of the European wide local sustainability scenario
