Towards the achievement of SDGs: Evidence from European cities

Keywords: Sustainable Development Goals, Cities, Climate change


Starting from the relationship between urban planning and mobility management, TeMA has gradually expanded the view of the covered topics, always following a rigorous scientific in-depth analysis. This section of the Journal, Review Notes, is the expression of a continuous updating of emerging topics concerning relationships among urban planning, mobility and environment, through a collection of short scientific papers. The Review Notes are made of four parts. Each section examines a specific aspect of the broader information storage within the main interests of TeMA Journal. In particular, the Economy, business and land use section aims at presenting recent advancements on relevant topics that underlie socio-economic relationships between firms and territories. The present note deals with the topic of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and on how European cities are performing in the achievement of such a differentiated set of targets.
