Desarrollo urbano sostenible integrado

Desarrollo urbano sostenible integrado
Luxemburgo: Oficina de Publicaciones de la Unión Europea, 2014
Ficha informativa de la Comisión Europea
Las ciudades son concentraciones espaciales de actividades e interacciones humanas. Constituyen los motores de la economía europea, ya que proporcionan trabajos y servicios, y actúan como catalizadores de la creatividad y la innovación en toda la UE. Cerca del 70% de la población de la UE vive en zonas urbanas, las cuales generan más de dos tercios del PIB de la UE. Sin embargo, también son los lugares donde se concentran problemas persistentes, como el desempleo, la segregación y la pobreza, además de las presiones medioambientales más intensas. Por consiguiente, las políticas emprendidas en relación con las áreas urbanas tienen una gran importancia para la UE en su conjunto. [+]

CoverGetting messages across using indicators - A handbook based on experiences from assessing Sustainable Development Indicators - 2014 edition 
Indicator-based assessment methods evaluate the evolution and/or the status of indicators in relation to a desired direction or target. They are meant to communicate main messages conveyed by indicators to both the general public and policy makers. This handbook describes the role of indicator-based assessment in measuring progress toward important European policy targets, and introduces a unifying terminology. Furthermore, it provides a classification of the methods in this field and reviews how the results from the assessment are communicated. The handbook is based on the experience gained on Sustainable Development Indicators in the ESS, but the methods it describes could also be applicable to other areas. It is the result of the work of the Expert Group on Indicator-based Assessment, created in 2010 at the initiative of the Swiss Federal Statistical Office and mandated by the Eurostat Working Group on Sustainable Development Indicators.

La Comisión Europea ha adoptado hoy una Comunicación para contribuir a la posición de la UE en las negociaciones internacionales sobre los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible (ODS), sucesores de los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio (ODM). Los ODS aspiran a reforzar el compromiso de la comunidad internacional para erradicar la pobreza y fomentar el desarrollo sostenible, retos que afectan a la vida de las generaciones actuales y futuras. La Comunicación de la Comisión describe los principios clave y propone ámbitos prioritarios y posibles objetivos para los años posteriores a 2015, como un paso hacia la creación de un número limitado de Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible.

CoverSustainable development in the European Union - Key messages - 2013 edition
Sustainable development is a fundamental and overarching objective of the European Union, enshrined in the Treaty. The EU Sustainable Development Strategy (EU SDS) brings together the many strands of economic, social and environmental policy under one overarching objective — to continually improve the quality of life and well-being for present and future generations. The Eurostat monitoring report, based on the EU set of sustainable development indicators and published every two years, provides an objective, statistical picture of progress towards the goals and objectives of the EU SDS. This ‘lite’ version of the 2013 monitoring report makes use of the universal language of visuals, offering a shortcut to the essence of the messages delivered through the full version of the monitoring report. It thus provides a snapshot of the key trends related to sustainable development in the European Union. [+]

 

CoverSustainable development in the European Union - 2013 monitoring report of the EU sustainable development strategy
The EU sustainable development strategy, launched by the European Council in Gothenburg in 2001 and renewed in June 2006, aims for the continuous improvement of quality of life for current and future generations. The Eurostat monitoring report, published every two years, provides an objective, statistical picture of progress, based on the EU set of sustainable development indicators. Quantitative rules applied consistently across indicators, and visualised through weather symbols, provide a relative assessment of whether Europe is moving in the right direction, and with sufficient haste, given the objectives and targets defined in the strategy. The data presented cover the period from 1990 to 2012 (or the latest year available). The statistics covered illustrate the range of issues relevant for sustainable development, and should contribute to raising awareness of the opportunities and challenges lying ahead. [+]

Waste indicators on generation and landfilling measuring sustainable development 2004-2010
Statistics in focus. Environment 22/2013.
Since reference year 2004, Eurostat collects every two years comprehensive data on waste generation and treatment under Regulation 2002/2150/EC on waste statistics (WStatR). This article presents in detail two WStatR-based indicators: The sustainable development indicator 'generation of waste excluding major mineral wastes’ (tsdpc210) and the new indicator ‘landfilling of waste excluding major mineral wastes’, intended to become part of the new set of resource efficiency indicators. Whereas waste generation excluding major mineral wastes remained rather stable since 2004, the data reveal a steady and clear downward trend for the generation of ‘household and similar wastes’. The landfill indicator illustrates the considerable differences between the achievements of EU-Member States towards the diversion of waste from landfills. [+]
