Project objectives include on the one hand to improve the understanding of, and raising awareness among local decision-makers on how to, manage urbal space. On the other hand will the project look into what are the spatial implications of sectoral policies. Activities will be carried out as part of five work packages. Actions will be taken to increase the involvement of different actors to avoid fragmented governance and to decrease territorial im-balances, especially targeting imbalances in the provision of healthcare and in economic de-velopment opportunities. Activities will also support more integrated land management to pre-vent urban sprawl, preserve green and recreational areas and manage the competition for land. In parallel, will these activities be monitored and researched to identify best practice in managing «urbal» space, which will be presented to the EC.
