SEEDIS identifies and features resources and tools to encourage collaboration and support stakeholders in their transition towards sustainable communities and socioeconomic activity. SEEDIS promotes solutions for the sustainable development and operation of communities and the built environment.
The solutions require new urban rules and regulations, improved urban planning and design, and municipal finance. They call for consultation and inclusion of all actors and stakeholders in the process, including partnerships with business and civil society to find sustainable solutions to the urban challenges.
Where government policies regulate business and provide the business enabling sustainable development environment, business develops and delivers the solutions, and civil society ensures the achievement of the sustainable development goals. Collaboration combines complementary resources and competencies to maximize value creation for mutual benefit.
Systemic solutions for the localization of the SDGs are developed in collaboration between politics, research, business and civil society. Collaboration fosters the creation, promotion, and enhancement of open, user-friendly, and participatory data platforms using technological and social tools available to transfer and share knowledge.
Stakeholders from the public, private, and third sectors recommend services and solutions for the sustainable development and operation of properties and the built environment. Professionals, practitioners, service providers, academics and government authorities along the project value chain offer sustainable solutions for the whole life cycle of buildings.
SEEDIS focuses on the key aspects and solutions for the development of communities:
- Planning & Development – Concept and planning, project feasibility analysis and the business case, operating models, financing, project management, and construction.
