  • Policy Brief

    Territorial Scenarios for Europe towards 2050

    Territorial scenarios focusing on the development of metropolitan regions, of cities or of regions will towards 2050 deliver the same level of economic growth for Europe. However, attention to the development of cities seems to have a slight advantage towards 2030.

    An evolution during 2020-2050 gradually unleashing more and more growth potential for cities and regions will, assuming technological progress, lead to a significant reduction of regional disparities in relative terms, and deliver the highest overall economic growth for Europe with more limited environmental impacts in terms of land-take, transport and energy demand.
