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.
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 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.
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.

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 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.
This document collects the Strategic Planning Frameworks of the eight Pilot Cities, providing information about priorities,
objectives and actions emerged within each Pilot City.
Deliverable 4.2. is available here.
This deliverable presents a collaborative methodology to be implemented in the Physical Agoras (Face to Face Agoras) to consolidate the Local Strategic Action Plan (LSAP) and to set up the evaluation matrix for the implementation of the selected LSAP actions.
Deliverable 5.1. is available here.
– UrbanWINS D5.2. Eight evaluation Plans.
These documents establish an evaluation plan to analyse the effectiveness of the implementation and the impact of the pilot actions in the UrbanWINS pilot cities within the framework of the project.
You can find the evaluation plan for each pilot city here:
This document collects the Local Strategic Action Plans of the eight Pilot Cities. The first section is about the selected PilotActions and provides information for their implementation and monitoring. The second section is about the other strategic actions and provides information about the actions’ potential contribution in the urban metabolism, circular economy and capacity of integration in waste prevention and management processes.
Deliverable 5.3. is available here.
– UrbanWINS D6.1. Corpus of at least 50 Best Practices concerning waste prevention and management strategies
The purpose of this deliverable is to aggregate and systematize in a common format the various waste initiatives identified in the previous WPs and to propose a list of at least 50 Best Practices relevant for decision makers in the field of waste prevention and management around Europe.
Deliverable 6.1. is available here.
– UrbanWINS D6.2. Guidelines for the use of UM, MFA and LCA analysis results in waste decision making
This document details the purposes and the uses of urban metabolism (UM), material flow analysis (MFA) and life cycle assesment (LCA) in urban waste prevention and management policies, and the experiences derived from the use of these tools in the eight piloting cities. It does so in non-technical vocabulary for all readers to understand it.
Deliverable 6.2. is available here.
– UrbanWINS D6.3. Guidelines for the selection and implementation of adequate stakeholder engagement techniques
These guidelines are developed mainly from the experiences of the stakeholder engagement process implemented in UrbanWINS project. The document explores the importance of stakeholder involvement in the development and deployment of urban waste policies, and details various participatory techniques and methods to select and engage stakeholders. It also describes the main conclusions of stakeholder engagement via the face-to-face agoras that can be of direct use for other public authorities.
