The OECD Metropolitan Review

At the end of 2022, the Brussels government decided to launch a “Metropolitan Review" by OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) for the Brussels-Capital Region.

It is a neutral diagnostic of the Region's main strengths and challenges compared to other metropolitan areas, and focuses on three main themes:

  • housing
  • urban planning
  • governance

→ In 2023, Urban made a major contribution to this report, both with projects on regulation and digitalisation, and on urbanism, heritage and urban renewal.

On 6 February 2024, the report was officially announced at the Brussels Parliament.

If you are curious to know how Brussels is doing, what challenges the Region is facing and what the recommendations are for even more effective, sustainable and inclusive urban development, read the report via the link below.
