Multi-level monitoring of urban development is not yet institutionalised across-the-board as required by some guidelines. Its function is to inform all levels involved, to formulate goals and to define work steps by way of a compatible and harmonised data language.
The BBSR and the NIUA in New Delhi, India, have been cooperating in the field of applied urban and spatial research since 2018. Together they want to better understand the challenges in both countries and develop solutions for cities and city regions.
Project completed: The project focused on successful approaches of cooperation and communication supporting climate adaptation in urban planning processes. The resulting web-based "Toolbox Climate adaptation in urban development" supports and encourages local stakeholders and employees.
Project completed: The "Regional Landscaping" demonstration project served to sound out control instruments addressing the landscape transformation in five model regions. The results meeting served to discuss good approaches to reinforcing the concerns of the environmental asset of landscape.
Project completed: In the context of this research project, funded under the Experimental Housing and Urban Development (ExWoSt) programme, in-depth investigations have been made in 20 case study cities between 2017 an 2020.
Project updated: Against the backdrop of the German EU Council Presidency in 2020, the BBSR conducted a comparative research project on housing policies in the European Union. The project provides a comprehensive overview of the different programmatic approaches and characteristics of national housing policies.
Project completed: The project analysed the promotion of the urban dimension in the Structural Funding period 2014-2020 on the basis of all operational programmes in Germany. On this basis, the project team worked out guidelines for the subsequent 2021-2027 funding period.
Project completed: The study has analysed the development of housing benefit (Wohngeld) in the period 2009 to 2015 and presents the resulting need for reform (including ex ante expectations). An ex post impact analysis of the 2016 housing benefit reform was also conducted.
