Striving towards an equitable, democratic and sustainable society

The European Bureau of Library, Information and Documentation Associations is an independent umbrella association of library, information, documentation and archive associations and institutions in Europe.

Goal 11: 4. Main Eurostat Indicators

Key trend in “Sustainable cities and communities” show the following evidence (Eurostat Report, pp 215 and ss):

  • Quality of housing in the EU has improved over the past five years;
  • Europeans perceive their residential areas as quieter and safer, but exposure to air pollution remains an issue;
  • Despite recent improvements, exposure of the urban population to fine particular matter remains high;
  • The degree of urbanisation only has a marginal influence on overcrowding, but strongly affects perception of noise pollution, crime and vandalism;
  • Poor people tend to face more challenges in their living situation, especially in cities;
  • Cars are the main means of transport in the EU;
  • Despite good progress since 2001, stagnation in reducing the level of road fatalities in recent years has pushed the EU off track to meeting its 2020 target;
  • More environmentally friendly modes of municipal waste management in the EU;
  • Connection rates to wastewater treatment are increasing;
  • Settlement area per capita has increased.
