Sustainability Special Issue - Public Projects, Public-Private Partnerships and Economic Sustainability Evaluation
"Sustainability", an international open access journal, is open for contributions
Message from the Guest Editors, Cristina Coscia e Elena Fregonara
The current context, strongly characterized by the COVID-19 pandemic and by financial, economic and environmental emergencies, has further highlighted longstanding fragility: in particular, attention is focused on the need to relaunch the public role of institutions as a driving force and guarantee and guide in urban and territorial transformation processes.
The scientific community has highlighted the need for these challenges to be considered by decision makers in the field of real estate appraisal and project economic evaluation. More specifically, the question of interest is what the premises and the perspectives are for new approaches and evaluation methods. A real rethinking of approaches is necessary in light of the current situation, especially considering the urgent need for new tools that support investment planning and capital budgeting,
specifically planning, evaluating, and controlling investments, which capture the complexity of contemporary interventions along their life cycle, and that support the subjects involved in decision-making processes.
