CIVITAS Plus in Numbers highlights key results from the CIVITAS Plus phase of the Initiative, which ran from 2008 to 2012. Five demonstration projects were implemented during this period, involving 25 cities from 15 countries. Out of a total of over 300 measures, 48 have been selected for inclusion in this publication, based on their contribution to economic, environmental and social concerns — that is, to the three pillars of sustainable development.
This publication offers an insight into the results achieved by CIVITAS Plus cities in order to help other cities make a strong case for action in their own context. Following the evaluation methods used in the CIVITAS Initiative, headline indicators for economic, environmental, social and transport concerns can easily be identified. The indicators that appear depend on the areas relevant to each particular theme.
