TANGO-W: Transformative cApacity in eNerGy fOod and Water


Project no.: S-ENUTC-22-2

Project description:

TANGO-W is an applied research project that uses the concept of Urban Transformative Capacities (UTC) to evaluate cities’ potential for sustainability, specifically at the intersection of food, energy, and water systems. By doing so, the project aims to help cities tackle challenges associated with climate change and encourage more sustainable urban development.

Project funding:

ERA-Net Cofund Urban Transformation Capacities (ENUTC)

Project results:

TANGO-W results aim to support European cities becoming main drivers of change towards the energy transition. Results will benefit practitioners as well as policymakers, officials, civil sector stakeholders, local businesses, community groups, and citizens. TANGO-W’s capabilities and tools aim to attract and enrich future UTC experiments.
