Vitoria-Gasteiz Lighthouse Deployment: Vitoria-Gasteiz Diagnosis and Baseline

Vitoria-Gasteiz diagnosis and baseline framework definition for intervention, including a description of the diagnosis process; city characterisation through storytelling and an indicator factbox for each area of the city; city needs definition and prioritisation through SWOT and spatial analysis; a pre-definition of Coronación district interventions; and the description of the baseline definition framework, to be finally deployed in integrated planning report.

The overall objective of the workpackage “Vitoria-Gasteiz Lighthouse Deployment” is to develop the detailed planning and coordination, to set up the management structures and procedures, and to implement demonstration works in Vitoria-Gasteiz demo site according to the initial process layout.

This paper develops an in-depth evaluation of Vitoria-Gasteiz at city level, making use of the indicator system provided in workpackage "Monitoring and Evaluation". The main outputs of this document are a comprehensive diagnosis of Vitoria-Gasteiz and the area of Coronación, and the baseline evaluation framework to be used in the intervention. This diagnosis phase, including baseline calculation and city needs identification and prioritisation should be the first step of any intervention process.

This document has been divided in four parts describing main aspects of Vitoria-Gasteiz diagnosis and baseline definition.

Chapter 4 delves on the diagnosis process definition, regarding activities, phases, agents, methods and tools, among other factors.

Chapter 5 relies on indicators to describe and characterise Vitoria-Gasteiz performance regarding local conditions, energy supply and consumption, building stock and retrofitting needs, urban mobility, ICTs infrastructures and services, and citizen engagement.

Chapter 6 identifies and prioritizes city needs through SWOT analysis, defining the intervention area. This analysis will set the ground for the intervention baseline definition, which framework is presented on chapter 7.

Finally, last chapters draw main outputs to be used in other workpackages of the project as well as an Annex with the indicators system developed for this diagnosis.
