Planning, governance and economic development in airport areas Examples and lessons from Atlanta, Barcelona and Paris
April 2, 2019 - April 2019 This METROAirports report is the continuation of the Sustainable Airport Areas project, which was carried out between 2015 and 2017 under the leadership of IAU. This initiative resulted in the publication of a report entitled “Sustainable Airport Areas. Guidelines for Decision Makers”. This project represents an attempt to further conceptualise the notion of “airport area” and to broaden the perspective beyond the scope of previous research, which had focused mainly (but not exclusively) on airports and airport cities. The project has focused on three aspects related to airport areas, namely: (i) planning, (ii) governance, and (iii) economic development and employment policies.
DREAAM project focuses on the exchange of good practices on vocational education and training through strategic partnerships. The objective of the project is to develop relevant and high-quality skills and competencies. The project contributes to enriching knowledge and dissemination of policy recommendations with the purpose of matching the current skills of the population residing in airport areas with the actual skills as required by employers, in this case, airport companies.
