During the project lifetime, the UrbanWINS team produced and issued several documents as a result 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 .

Deliverable 1.2 is available here.

– UrbanWINS D2.1 Model architecture

The report introduces the concept of Economy-wide MFA and its adaptation for the analysis of cities’ metabolism. The suggested model was constructed based on the UMAn model tested on four European cities and described in scientific publications. The report defines the main procedure and boundaries of the analysis of urban metabolism. It provides the scope of statistical data required to feed the model, while more detailed requirements for data collection are set in the corresponding Manuals for data collection.
New approach is suggested to predict urban waste based on probability density function. The report summarizes the main indicators, which are expected to be used for analysis of urban metabolism, and their potential interconnection with life-cycle analysis and product environmental footprint, which would allow the UMAn model to enlarge the analysis of cities’ environmental impact as to include indirect flows.

Deliverable 2.1 is available here


– UrbanWINS D2.2 Urban metabolism guide

This report aims at defining a preliminary UMAn model guide for cities to implement it using the eight pilot cities data gathering process as case studies.
The document discusses the extensive data gathering process that local partners underwent, using D2.1 Model Architecture and specifically the Manual for data collection. Further, secondary sources of data and processing and compilation are described to illustrate the tasks that need to be performed depending on the data available. The report indicates that different cities in different countries have access to different levels of data, hence, different approaches to calculate the UMAn model need to be implemented, which indicates the need for further work and custom-tailored models.

– UrbanWINS D2.3 Urban Metabolism Case Studies

These reports provide an overview of the material flow accounting indicators, the available resources and the consumption structure of the pilot cities, as well as current and future waste generation. Further, it examines the characteristics of the municipalities in a regional and national context. The documents indicate the products, materials, economic activities and wastes that are most important within the cities.

You can find the reports for each pilot city here:

A comprehensive description of the applied indicators for waste prevention and management can be accessed here.


– UrbanWINS D2.4 Database of Urban Metabolism Flows

The database of Urban Metabolism Flows contains information to support public authorities in the decision making process. It is based on the results of studies applied to the eight cities, but it isorganised so as to be used by other cities too.

The database can be found here

– UrbanWINS D3.1 Stakeholder Matrixes

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.

 – UrbanWINS D3.2 Online Agoras

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


 – UrbanWINS D3.3 Syllabus

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 D3.4 Report on impacts of the participatory decision-making

This report presents the impacts on the Pilot Cities concerning the decisions that emerged from the UrbanWINS participatory process, namely what was done in a different way as opposed to what would have happened if the decisions had been taken only by the Municipalities.

Deliverable 3.4 is available here


 – UrbanWINS D3.5 Report on effective stakeholder engagement practices

This document aims to report the level of stakeholder engagement in the UrbanWINS project. It describes what went well and not so well in UrbanWINS experience, so that other cities, towns and stakeholders can build upon this experience.

– UrbanWINS D4.1 Methodological guidelines for the construction of Strategic Planning frameworks based on urban metabolism approach

These methodological guidelines aim to support and guide pilot cities throughout the whole creation process of the strategic planning framework. The methodological guidelines will follow 4 main steps: – study and analyze the urban policy in place; – define priorities and main objectives; – identify scenarios and actions; – Develop the strategic plan. The methodological guidelines will be used by each pilot city in order to create its specific strategic planning framework. Deliverable 4.1 is available here

The roadmap is a list of achievements, goals, priorities and guidelines, which define and communicate the future strategic planning. It is the main tool to describe and develop the strategic line for the future of a product. In this case, the product is the urban planning aimed at the achievement of a circular economy model and an urban metabolism approach.
