During the project lifetime, the UrbanWINS team will produce and issue several documents as a results of the research and the activities carried out within different Work Packages. These documents are useful resources for cities interested in adapting and replicating the eco-innovative waste prevention and management strategies to be developed.
– UrbanWINS D1.1 State of The Art
The first deliverable presents the methodology followed to the literature review. This research aimed the collection and classification of waste prevention and management policies and strategies currently in use in the target countries. This task was complemented with the collection of data via an online questionnaire to relevant stakeholders and an analysis of topic-related EU projects.
Deliverable 1.1 is available here.
– UrbanWINS D1.2 Assessment of Determinants and Effects of Waste Prevention and Management Strategies Policies and Strategies
Deliverable 1.2 presents a comprehensive analysis of the waste policies and strategies in six European countries based on previous tasks within the project and surveys and interviews to relevant stakeholders. Main aim was to establish the determining factors concerning waste prevention and the most relevant management strategies and policies;
This document specifies the DPSIR (Driving Forces-Pressures-State-Impact-Responses) model developed for waste management (WM) and the determinants related that affect these policies and regulations under the social sphere. Also, D1.2 explains the identification of the explanatory variables of urban metabolism and their influence on material flows in general and waste generation for the 8 pilot cities .
The current deliverable describes the methodology used to the identification and the conception of a stakeholder matrix. This approach was based on three consequential phases: Identification, Mapping and Matrixes and was performed using a management tool kit named “Stakeholder Categorized Map (SCM)”. The main results were the identification of an initial group of country stakeholders within the urban metabolism framework and, at a second stage, a refined matrix was developed promoting the analysis concerning the power, interest and dynamism of the stakeholders, comparing the stakeholders’ answers and relativizing the absolute value of their answers.
Deliverable 3.1. is available here.
The present derivable was settled to describe the integration of the Online Agoras spaces. These are the digital compliment to the physical Urban_Wins Agoras and was developed to share knowledge, documents and experiences, creating a network between users, to engage target audiences in the participatory processes, to better inform innovative waste management strategies, to increase target groups’ commitment to and involvement in decisions and actions, to communicate and disseminate the results within the project to relevant target groups and encourage the participation of stakeholders. The Online Agoras includes one language for each country platform except for Spain plus one “international platform” in English and the content inputted should be mostly related to initiatives occurring within that country but could include international examples.
Deliverable 3.2. is available here.
This deliverable report on the methodology and program of the activities to train teams, preparing them with competences in collaborative approaches for promoting the creation of the physical urban agoras for stakeholders from various sectors to support joint development of strategies based on mutual learning in each city. Syllabus will favour “hands on” and experimentation as a more efficient way for participants to acquire competences and internalize concepts essential for phasing and structuring efficient collaborative processes.
Deliverable 3.3. is available here.
– UrbanWINS D8.1. Communications and Dissemination Strategy
This communication and dissemination strategy explains how the project will communicate its developments and outcomes, and how the consortium will ensure visibility and promotion of the project and dissemination of its results throughout the project. This deliverable addresses the communication approaches and objectives, the target audiences, the key messages, the visual identity associated to the project, the communication channels and products, as well as their connection with defined approaches. Also this document sets the timeline and the evaluation and monitoring tools for this work package.
Deliverable 8.1. is available here.
