The aim of this ESPON activity is to develop a practical and operational ESPON European and Macro-regional Territorial Monitoring Tool to continuously observe the development trends and patterns taking place in Europe, its macro-regions, regions and cities. The tool should support European, macro-regional, national and regional policy makers and other stakeholders with territorial information, data, maps, graphs, analytical features and short reports. By reading and interpreting the quantitative statistical information in the light of policy objectives and aims, the results of this activity shall help policy makers to monitor development trends and policy performance, identify development opportunities and territorial challenges, as well as better understand the diversity and position (benchmarking) of regions and cities in the heterogeneous European context.
