Assessing investment projects and policy options for evidence-based decision making

We know planning for complex territorial systems is hard. It requires taking into account many interlinked variables that have a direct impact on citizens’ lives. Modeling urban growth scenarios requires collecting, standardizing and integrating information from different sources and performing several statistical processes and validations before forecasting future conditions. To ease this process we created the Urban Performance Tool.

Urban Performance assesses the city's present and future performance by creating multiple growth scenarios that include investment projects, public policies and land regulations. The results are evaluated in a set of indicators related to the Sustainable Development Goals.
