Nuno F. da Cruz, Assistant Professorial Research Fellow at LSE Cities, has co-authored an article on the Metropolitan Indicators project for Spanish newspaper El País.
The article, titled 'Where do cities begin and end' in English, was co-written by Metropolis Secretary General Octavi de la Varga Mas. It argues that the governance of metropolitan areas can create opportunities for sustainable urban development.
The Metropolitan Indicators project, a collaboration with Metropolis, aimed to develop a system of comparative indicators for a range of major cities. This research resulted in a database of 38 metropolitan indicators for 58 metropolitan territories.
A recent report by Metropolis on the state of African metropolises mainly based its analysis on the metropolitan indicators database.
