© Topics Organisational reform and policy changes in the field of water management Integrating biodiversity aspects in spatial planning with a view to land value Special instruments to stimulate the application of renewable energies New forms of public awareness raising and education for environmental needs
© Topics Improving the implementation of legislation in the field of waste and water policy (i.e. Integrated Waste Management System in Cluj County) Improving the communication side of broader environmental programmes (like national climate protection programmes, i.e. klima:aktiv Austrian Energy Agency, Austria). Developing an sustainable energy action plan in accordance with the Covenant of Mayors (i.e. Sustainable Energy Action Plan, City of Udine, Italy); Establishing environmental management in difficult policy sectors (Defence Ministry Cyprus, Energy Smart Authority, Malta); Introducing instruments as PPP in environmental projects (i.e. Radical innovation in energy policy and management of towns and cities in the province of Barcelona.
© Lessons learned It is in particular the local level that is now taking responsibility in sectors that have in the past been seen as tasks for national or regional authorities (energy policy, transport policy, procurement, etc.) Successful incorporation of green procurement practices into all branches of an administration means creating ownership in all parts of the administration Comprehensive long term strategy of cities for sustainable development: the frontrunners are inspired and supported by international networks
© Lessons learned Projects without much funding: searching for a new role of public administrations as motivator and moderator bringing together stakeholders and respecting their interests New start for Environmental Management Systems: applying EMS across administrations (not only in environmental departments) Public relation and information campaigns as crucial elements of successful sustainable development programmes
