iiSBE workshop on urban performance assessment

iiSBE organized a small international workshop on the performance assessment of small urban areas, that took place on 17-18 January at UN offices in Paris.

The workshop included 22 invited researchers who are active in the field. Presentations covered the development of an urban assessment tool for CESBA, the Common European Sustainable Building Assessment network that is composed of 9 European urban regions, the development of URBENERE, a similar system being developed for Latin American countries and a theoretical overview by Serge Salat who has extensive experience in this field. There was also discussion of urban assessment issues. We attach the notes from the event.
