Assessment Of The Sustainable Urban Development Level Through The Use Of Indicators Of Sustainability
AbstractIn this paper the authors analized the evolution of four major cities of Romania between 2006-2008, with the goal to compare and rank them in terms sustainable development. To meet this goal, we have choosed indicators of sustainability at urban level, grouped in four categories (economic, social, environmental and natural resources). For each city was calculated an overall score. The comparation of these scores could be used to diferentiate the cities in terms of sustainability in each year and the evolution during a period of three years, and provides important informations about the measures that can be applied for future improvement.
