Video on the Partnership and Action 5 on 'Functional Urban Area (FUA) cooperation to mitigate urban sprawl'

The Partnership on Sustainable Use of Land and Nature-Based Solutions has produced a video. It outlines the Partnership's overall objectives and also explains Action 5 on 'Promoting Functional Urban Area (FUA) cooperation as a tool to mitigate urban sprawl' in depth. 

The clip sets out the various benefits of FUA cooperation to mitigate urban sprawl and its negative impact on the environment and on human communities:

  1. Strengthening socio-economic development;
  2. More sustainable land-use practices and less urban sprawl;
  3. Strengthening the position of cooperating municipalities at the national level;
  4. Savings for municipal budgets.
