Disentangling urban sustainability: the Flemish City Monitor acknowledges complexity

Thomas Block UGent and Joke Van Assche UGent (2010) Ecological Informatics, 7th International conference, Proceedings.
abstract
Nowadays, cities have to deal with complexity. In this article we argue that the City Monitor for Sustainable Urban Development in the Flanders (Belgium) acknowledges complexity. This set of almost 200 SDIs (Sustainable Development Indicators) contains actor-exceeding and policy-exogenous information. On that account this learning instrument is relevant for all actors involved in the urban (sustainable) development of their city and is able to enhance and to sharpen the quality of strategic urban debates and complex decision-making processes. Our intensive co-design approach of the City Monitor also succeeds to deal adequate with the tensions of complex catch-all terms such as (urban) sustainability.
