International and inter-regional migration has significant impacts on the demographic structures of our urban and rural areas. Our workshop discussions on 13 May demonstrated that planners are often working with insufficient data for reliable housing, transport and service needs projections.
The ESPON programme is bringing together demographic information through the DEMIFER project that will underpin improved capacity for UK authorities to benchmark regional and local trends against Europe-wide trends and to scope the implications of such trends.
The ESPON programme also offers the potential in forthcoming calls for authorities to request case study research to explore specific issues for migration and demographic forecasting and impacts.
