The online “One-stop shop” portal on EU urban policies responds to the needs expressed by cities in the context of the Urban Agenda to have complete, reliable and updated information in a simple and accessible form on the key EU urban policies and initiatives having an impact on cities.

The portal centralises all information on the priority themes of the Urban Agenda for the EU, such as on air quality, climate adaptation, energy transition and urban mobility.

The Urban Data Platform, hosted by the Knowledge Centre on Territorial Policies and which will be linked to the “One-stop shop”, provides a single access point to common indicators on the status and trends of more than 600 urban areas in Europe.
