A sustainable Zoetermeer. Building blocks for the sustainability programme 2019-2022

The municipality of Zoetermeer commissioned CE Delft to assess its current sustainability policy, factoring in major policy developments outside the municipality, and to provide advice on key building blocks for new policy and suitable indicators for monitoring progress. The study also looked at the capacity requirements of such new policy. This exploratory study was conducted by studying municipal policy papers and reports and interviewing local policy officials, managers and the responsible alderman. Based on the conclusions and recommendations, the municipality has drawn up a new policy programme, which can be viewed here (in Dutch).
