Baltic Urban Lab definition for brownfields & recommendations for improving national policy approaches on integrated brownfield redevelopment

There is a high demand for redeveloping brownfield areas to make European cities grow in a more sustainable manner. However, the Central Baltic region does not have a long tradition of national policy approaches to brownfield redevelopment. Nor there is a commonly agreed European definitions on what a brownfield is. Baltic Urban Lab has published a definition for brownfields based on the discussion in the project. In addition, the project  has identified recommendations to national actors who wish to promote brownfield redevelopment in their countries calling for a more coordinated national policy approach to brownfield development. The document is also available in Estonian, Finnish, Latvian and Swedish.
