Built environment programme
Analyses the city and its environs
The aim of the Built environment programme is to survey and analyse the city and its environs. This includes human health and perceptions of the urban environment as well as issues concerning urban sprawl and planning of green and water areas. Results are intended to help in monitoring achievement of the "Good Built Environment" quality objective.
Jesper Persson, programme coordinator:
”Almost 80 per cent of the population of Europe now live in cities. Growing urban populations increase the need for good housing environments, recreational facilities and transport solutions. If we are to ensure that this development is sustainable, we will need to know more about the urban landscape and the impact of its technical systems.”
