20 Nov 2018

Rapid Appraisal

Expressions of Urban – Peri-Urban – Rural Relationships ("Snapshots") are succinct reviews of previous projects, studies and data about what is already known about the relationship between urban, peri-urban and rural areas in the regional Living Lab. The Snapshot focuses on the factors that limit/enable beneficial relationships and highlight inspiring examples of rural-urban synergies. The aim of the Snapshot is to provide a better understanding of the needs, availability and comparability of data across the Living Labs.
