Key Indicators for Territorial Cohesion and Spatial Planning (KITSCASP)
Start date: Jan 31, 2012, End date: Jul 30, 2013 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The KITCASP project will explore the use of territorial data in developing and monitoring national spatial strategies and other territorial development policies in Scotland, Ireland, Latvia, Iceland and the Basque Country, Spain. It will examine the extent to which ESPON data has informed the strategies examined and develop guidelines on the use of indicators and ESPON data in territorial policy development at the national level. A particular emphasis is placed on identifying a core set of key indicators for territorial cohesion, economic competitiveness and sustainable development to inform spatial planning at the national level, drawing on ESPON research and datasets available in the partner countries. The project will also consider how the capacity for spatial analysis can be strengthened and harmonised at the national level, how national analytical experience and expertise can help to inform and take forward the EU Territorial Agenda, and the implications for future ESPON research.
