Paper published on Sustainability – Urban Planning Policies to the Renewal of Riverfront Areas: The Lisbon Metropolis Case

The article “Urban Planning Policies to the Renewal of Riverfront Areas: The Lisbon Metropolis Case” was published recently in the Sustainability journal. The paper investigates how urban planning policies, namely European Union (EU) and national urban development plans, have helped renew the waterfront areas in the Lisbon metropolis in the past decades. The results demonstrate an intense renewal of the waterfront areas, particularly in the city of Lisbon, into leisure, ecologic and touristic areas, vis-à-vis the previous industrial and harbour vocation.
The article authored by Ana Brandão, Paulo Tormenta Pinto and Sara Silva Lopes, from the GP research team with Eduardo Medeiros, belongs to the Special Issue Urban Legacies of the Late 20th Century.
