Horizon2020 REPAiR project, REsource Management in Peri-urban AReas. Going beyond Urban Metabolism (http://h2020repair.eu/), investigates the fl ows of material looking for those dysfunctions of urban metabolism that determine landscapes of waste, so-called “wastescapes”. According to the principles of Circular Economy (CE), wastescape can be considered an innovative resource for the regeneration of territories in crisis, and allow a change of paradigm able to determine multiple and different environmental, economic, social and cultural implications. The methodological approach aims at making operational the concept of Urban Metabolism, according to the CE principles, deepening the dynamics between energy fl ows, waste, information and people and identifying ecological and innovative solutions deriving from a win-win-win approach, considering the environmental, social and economic impacts of the transformations and the benefi ts deriving from the intrinsic relationships inherent in metabolic systems. The key challenge is to integrate models and methods to enable stakeholders to use the platform of GeoDesign Decision Support Environment (GDSE) for the interaction between the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Peri-Urban Living Labs (PULLs) in order to develop reliable alternatives for spatial sustainable development strategies able to enhancing waste and resource management. A hybrid decision-making process consists of that tree interactive processes, where results from PULLs and LCA converge in GDSE in a reiterative methodology to enabling decision-makers to assess their decision alternatives.
