This material, which was submitted to the government on 10 November 2003, contains a section on Spatial Planning, which reflects the priorities of Formas regarding the part of Formas' activity, which is related to construction. This section deals with issues to do with environment and health, materials, buildings and civil engineering installations, urban and rural development.
The research strategy for sustainable spatial planning, which is set out in this document, is a complement to, and to some extent an in-depth review of, the research strategy of Formas. Formas and BIC want to strongly emphasise the great significance that the construction sector has in regard to the ability of society to achieve sustainable development.
