LF433 - Built-up area per inhabitant (LUISA Platform REF2014)

Collection: LUISA : Land-Use based Integrated Sustainability Assessment modelling platform 

Description

The built-up area per inhabitant measure the land consumption by comparing the size of the built-up areas with the population expressed in sq. m per inhabitant (m2 per person). The level of detail of this indicator is per NUTS0 and NUTS2.

  • Abstract

    The Communication from the Commission on the Roadmap to Resource Efficient Europe (RERM) defines a set of milestones to illustrate what is required to put Europe on a path to resource efficiency and sustainable growth, thus contributing to a global economic transformation. The 2020 milestone for land is defined as "By 2020 […], the rate of land take is on track with an aim to achieve no net land take by 2050[…]". DG ENV and JRC are conducting a study aiming at assessing the level of effort needed in the EU in order to reach the land milestone set in the Resource Efficiency Roadmap. The study will also analyse environmental consequences of reaching (or not) the 2020 milestone. The study is divided into three parts, covering the following:  the progress towards reaching the 2020 milestone related to “being on track towards no net land take by 2050” in the EU27 (Part I);  the environmental consequences of the achievement of the 2020 land-take milestone (Part II);  the efficiency of land resources’ management in the past and in the future (Part III). This document presents the results of the Part I of the study. The methodological framework relies on an integrated modelling approach based on the Land-Use Modelling Platform (LUMP) . In this modeling platform, three land take

    development scenarios are being developed and assessed.

  • Abstract

    The European Union is committed, through the Cohesion Policy, to contribute to a sustainable economic, social and territorial cohesion by reducing disparities between the levels of development of regions and countries of its member states. The EU's main investment policy is also responsible for mainstreaming the environment into its programmes and projects. The Land Use-based Integrated Sustainability Assessment Platform (LUISA) was parameterized according to a ‘Reference Scenario 2014’ to assess the spatial impact of regional and urban policy in Europe. In order to show the impacts of EU policies included in the Reference Scenario, a set of indicators were computed to measure [1] land use intensity and the urban sprawl and [2] the implication of this policy on accessibility in the EU regions. The modelling results indicated that in spite of important regional differences, the overall land use intensity will decline. The Reference Scenario also shows a general increase in urban sprawl across Europe most significantly in the main EU capital cities.
