An worldwide comparison of metropolitan strategies.


Metro in Progress has been established to offer solutions for regional authorities, provinces and municipalities when confronted with designing or implementing metropolitan strategies.

The research compares different metropolises in the world on similar topics; the scale of the metropolitan area, governance and municipal co-operation, new forms of urbanity and eco-systems, innovative economy and sustainability. These 5 topics are chosen, as they are topics many metropolises struggle with, and as they describe the metropolis in a broader context. By doing so, the relation within the metropolis between for example sustainability, the scale of the metropolis and its economy becomes more apparent.


Metro in Progress is a co-operation between the INTA ‘Community of Competence on Metropolisation’ and the Deltametropolis Association.
