The main objective is to provide local government officials with methods and tools develop a full understanding of neighbourhood performance issues and their interaction, and to provide a platform for setting targets for future performance.
The European activities are organized by the Common European Sustainable Building Assessment (CESBA) group, an informal organization that consists of 9 European urban areas, with technical leadership provided by Architect Andrea Moro of iiSBE Italia. The activities outside of Europe are focused on Tokyo and Kaohsiung (Taiwan), and are currently being led by Nils Larsson of iiSBE.
The pilot neighbourhood assessments will be presented at the WSBE20 conference in Gothenburg in June 2020.
