Developed through the Horizon 2020 “Build-in-Wood” project, the catalogue presents the rationale, characteristics and impact of different policy instruments at the global level, offering insights with respect to strengths and weaknesses of different policy approaches at the sub-national level and supporting cities and regions who aim to channel their efforts for creating a more sustainable built environment by prioritizing wood, either implicitly or explicitly.
Furthermore, Build-in-Wood brought together seven Early Adopter City (EACs) affiliates across Europe – Metropolitan Region of Amsterdam (NL), Brasov Metropolitan Area (RO), Copenhagen (DK), Haringey Borough of London (UK), Innsbruck (AT), Trento (IT) and Trondheim (NO) – to support wood to become a first-choice, competitive building material for multi-storey buildings.
This catalogue presents several conclusions from the analysis of their strategic and urban planning and regulatory framework, urban development preconditions, together with the local participatory process implemented with their relevant stakeholder ecosystem from the wood construction value chain.
The catalogue identifies in the end transferable lessons learned and recommendations which can serve as guidance for other European cities that want to advance their agenda towards a sustainable construction environment.
