In view of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as well as the New Urban Agenda being adopted by the United Nations in 2016, the European Committee of the Regions has commissioned ÖIR with drafting a file note on “Spatial planning and governance within EU policies and legislation and their relevance to the New Urban Agenda”.

ÖIR identified the relevant policies and legislation with significant influence on spatial planning measures by national, regional and local authorities, among other sources based on the ESPON-COMPASS project. Building on that, the potential impact of those policies and legislation on the Sustainable Development Goals and the goals of the New Urban Agenda concerning planning issues has been outlined, taking into regard territorial and sectoral factors as well.
