SUSTAINABLE AIRPORT AREAS. GUIDELINES FOR DECISION MAKERS

In a context of increasing globalization of trade, of rising international flows of goods and people, and the resulting global rise in air traffic, international airports have become strategic assets for the development and attractiveness of nations.

The present report is the main outcome of the "Sustainable Airport Areas" Metropolis initiative, aiming to create a common ground of good practices related to sustainable development of airport areas, to better take into account the issues in these areas and to facilitate the implementation of appropriate policies. 

This initiative has been supported and partially funded by Metropolis and led by the Institute of Planning and Development of the Île-de-France Region.
