Figure Active land uses
Development and economic growth with less urban sprawl — simulation of urban land‑use development in the Algarve region (Portugal) Different scenarios for regional development to 2020 have been simulated to evaluate the impacts of economic trends and spatial policies on land use: • Scenario A Business as usual: continuation of current conditions, where agriculture, fisheries and tourism are the main economic activities. Internal demographic movements are the major drivers of land‑use changes. GDP increases by 2.9% per year. • Scenario S Scattered development: urban land-take is the result of high population growth, especially due to the influx of tourists, and economic growth both in the industrial and service sectors. Increase in GDP is twice that in Scenario A at 6 %. • Scenario C Compact development: spatial policies and restrictive planning aim at concentrating urbanisation in designated areas. GDP growth is as in Scenario S, 6 %.

Article C source code header Analysing and managing urban growth
Over the last decades, continuous urban expansion at rates much higher than population growth has resulted in a massive urban footprint on Europe – fragmenting rural space, blocking ecosystem services and increasing the demand for transport and energy.

Publication Land in Europe: prices, taxes and use patterns
Developments in land‑use patterns across Europe are generating considerable concern, particularly in relation to achievement of environmental goals. Land‑use trends — such as urban sprawl and land abandonment — are jeopardising the future for sustainable land use. Moreover, these trends endanger the achievement of European environmental goals in areas such as biodiversity protection and water management and also hinder the effectiveness of instruments in these areas, including the Natura 2000 network and the Water Framework Directive.
