D1.2 Roadmap for Urban Transformation
Work Package 1 (WP1) “Urban Transformation Strategy”, and specifically Task 1.2. “Urban Transformation”, aim at defining a multi-layered strategy promoting structural transformation directing the partner cities’ urban development towards sustainability. Building up on the work developed by the 7 partner cities for the City Vision 2050, the “Roadmap for urban transformation” seeks to identify the pathway that will bridge the gap between the present and the envisioned future. For this the roadmapping process takes into consideration the Key Strategic Areas (KSA) for urban transformation identified by each city as a framework onto which the existing city development strategies, processes and initiatives are organized, as well as the activities being developed under SPARCS project [Replication & Scale-up Plans in the 2 Lighthouse cities (LHCs) and the Implementation Plans in the 5 Fellow Cities (FCs)]. Based on this framework, a participatory process, involving a vast array of stakeholders and experts relevant for the KSA, was developed, resulting in the identification and discussion of the main outcomes (projects, measures, technological developments) that need to be delivered in 2030 and 2040 in order to achieve the desired sustainable future identified for 2050 in the City Vision process.
This deliverable presents the whole process of methodological development and implementation of the roadmap in each partner city. The methodology was tested in two pilot roadmapping workshops held in the city of Kladno and was used by the task forces of the 7 partner cities to develop a tailored approach and implement the roadmapping workshops adapted to their context. As a result, each city developed a roadmap consisting in the graphic representation of their pathway towards sustainability, with specific milestones for each KSA, and the description of the main measures and relevant inputs that contribute to those milestones. Considering that each territory has its specificities, the results also include the description of the roadmapping process and lessons learned, serving as an example for other cities who are following similar paths and wish to implement their own roadmaps towards sustainability.
This deliverable is submitted, but it is pending official approval.
