Note: while settlements and neighbourhoods with ecological-sustainable objectives from 1970 to 2009 are most likely fully inserted in the database, there are probably gaps in the period from 2010 onwards. One issue here is that due to the normality of the measures, many of the settlements no longer explicitly refer to themselves as 'ecological settlements'. They are also no longer published in the trade/media because there tends to be less innovation compared to the projects between 1980 and 2000. In this respect, I assume that the realised housing units of sustainable settlements will be somewhat higher from 2010 onwards.

* As of 30.9.2016. In Europe, not all settlement and neighbourhood projects with sustainability objectives are fully recorded or documented in the web database. While the project directory in Germany should be relatively complete, the European countries have not been systematically updated since 2003.
