Urban Sustainability Review

An Urban Sustainability Review is both a process and a product.

It is a process for jointly exploring urban areas from a holistic perspective; an inclusive way of selecting and describing key issues which the town needs to address in development strategies, and key assets and opportunities, which should be leveraged in development projects and actions.

It provides a platform for open and transparent discussions and consultations on matters of local attention, as well as relations to global policies such as Sustainable Development Goals.

The USR product is a report presenting the findings and conclusions of the process. This report concludes on the key findings from the process and sets out Visions and Strategies for addressing urban challenges while making use of existing assets. The USR is the initial phase of the SymbioCity Approach.
