This brochure emphasises the role of the Urban Agenda for the EU in supporting innovative and good governance and in implementing the New Urban Agenda (NUA), as well as the diversity and variety of actions and achievements so far. The update includes references to the New Leipzig Charter, to the Ljubljana Agreement, the review of the UAEU’s contribution to the NUA, as well as answers of UAEU cities to COVID-19. It also includes contributions from the series of articles published in 2021, and other relevant EU projects and initiatives supported by Cohesion Policy.
The reader will be guided through a variety of ‘action stories’ and examples of actions divided by the different thematic Partnerships and working in a more integrated way to address cross-cutting issues and support better regulation, better funding and better knowledge. The brochure also looks at the multiple EU programmes and initiatives addressing sustainable urban development.
