Summary

The great number of existing actors, approaches and initiatives, on sustainable cities, resulted into a variety of different definitions none of which can claim to cover the whole complexity of the issue. The ABC for sustainable Cities aims to bring clarity on this. Rather than providing a single univocal definition of what is a “Sustainable City”, it brings together key elements of it by compiling terms and concepts from internationally recognised sources. In doing so, the ABC will contribute to a better understanding of city-level sustainable development, where new concepts, phrases, terms and expressions are developed and used across the world. By providing a reference easily accessible to technical and non-technical audience, moreover, the ABC helps developing a common language and fosters dialogue among stakeholders and sets the basis for cooperation.
