Urban Agenda: A "one-stop-shop" providing up-to-date information to Europe's cities
 
   

The European Commission has just launched a new web portal for cities to further reach out to cities, foster the exchange of best practices and the development of urban strategies.

Answering a need expressed by numerous cities in the development of the Urban Agenda for the EU the new "One-stop shop" portal provides up-to-date information on EU policies such as climate change adaptation, mobility or circular economy that directly impact cities and urban areas. Urban stakeholders can also get clear information on financing opportunities under the different EU funding instruments and on events related to urban development.

It will help cities address challenges such as affordable housing, energy efficiency or accessibility, by making the most out of EU funding opportunities.

In addition, the new Urban Data Platform, hosted on the Knowledge Centre for Territorial Policies operated by the Joint Research Centre, provides a single access point to common indicators on the status and trends in over 800 European urban areas – on demography, economic development or access to services, for example. This database will enable urban authorities and stakeholders to compare data, benchmark and monitor, which is one of the aims of the Urban Agenda.
