assessments developing the analytical framework 15 t h Nov 2018 Ric Eales (CEP) Rolands Sadauskis (CEP) PURPOSE / OBJECTIVES: REFINE / SUMMARISE THE CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK AND REINFORCE THE KNOWLEDGE BASE Produce a revised conceptual framework (CF) for the EEAs work on urban sustainability Building on the work from 2017 on supporting sustainability assessments developing the integrated knowledge base

2 OBJECTIVE OF THE CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK Provide a clear means for the EEA to structure its thinking on urban sustainability activities, including the foreseen 2020 Environmental Sustainability in Cities report (2020 ESIC Report), in terms of: The key outcomes that will / can / should define a vision of environmental sustainability in an urban context in Europe; and The aspects which are likely to be required to support the transition of European cities towards the vision of urban environmental sustainability. 3 APPROACH IN DEVELOPING THE CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK

Builds on the EEAs initial proposed four categories for urban sustainability and the work from 2017 Feedback on different iterations of the CF from stakeholders (internal and external to the EEA) Knowledge review of key EEA and external publications, review of key EU policy/theoretical frameworks Expert knowledge of the project team 4 WHAT IS NEW IN THE REVISED CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK Rephrased terminology of the two nested levels of urban sustainability concepts to more clearly describe their interrelationship: Lenses (formerly referred to as headline concepts) Building blocks (formerly sub-concepts)

The sustainable city viewed in connection with: Complex adaptive ecosystems Urban hinterland Complex urban systems flows (resource supply and disposal) Introduction of three production and consumption systems: food, energy and mobility Review and consolidation of the building blocks 5 STRUCTURE OF THE CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK

6 REVISED CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK MODEL Before After The resilient city The green city The circular city

The low carbon city The healthy city The inclusive city 7 CONSOLIDATING THE BUILDING BLOCKS Building blocks consolidated to reduce duplication and overlaps reduced from 30 to 17 Building blocks categorised into either

process or outcome Wording refined to provide brief titles of each building block supported by descriptions Relevance of the building blocks to different lenses 8 PROCESS BUILDING BLOCKS The Circular City The Healthy City The Inclusive City The Low Carbon City The Green City

Building blocks The Resilient City Most relevant lens Process 1. Policy coherence 2. Engagement and participation of stakeholders and citizens 3. Integrated planning, design and policy making 4. Partnership and community-led initiatives 5. Knowledge and awareness raising 6. Financing mechanisms 7. Digital technology 9 OUTCOME BUILDING BLOCKS

The Circular City The Healthy City The Inclusive City The Low Carbon City The Green City Building blocks The Resilient City Most relevant lens Outcome 8. Urban resilience 9.

Social and environmental justice 10. Quality of life 11. Urban ecological multi-functionality 12. Urban environmental quality 13. Urban agriculture and food systems 14. Decentralised renewable energy production 15. Energy and resource efficiency 16. Urban green economy 17. Urban mobility and accessibility 10 LENSES The six urban sustainability lenses provide different headline perspectives on the components of urban sustainability: The Resilient City

The Green City The Low carbon City The Inclusive City The Healthy City The Circular City The urban sustainability lenses encompass multiple building blocks, some of which contribute to more than one lens and therefore should not be viewed in isolation to achieve the transition to urban sustainability outcomes The note discusses the building blocks relevant to each lens and how each lens is embedded in various EU policy and theoretical frameworks 11 ENABLING FACTORS The five key enabling factors are expected to support transitioning of key urban systems towards the delivery of urban sustainability outcomes across the six lenses The five key enabling factors identified are:

Governance Finance Technology Data & Information Culture 12 DISCUSSION General comments, suggestions and critical final amendments to finalise the CF 13 CONTACT DETAILS Ric Eales and Rolands Sadauskis Collingwood Environmental Planning (CEP)
