The main aim of the M4D Project is to maintain, update, develop and expand the ESPON 2013 Database.

In this framework, the main European activities carried out to promote data comparability and data quality, in particular the INSPIRE Directive and the GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) initiative have been taken into consideration.

In general, this ESPON Database Portal supplies different users (researchers, policy makers and stakeholders at regional and local level) with data, indicators and tools that can be used for European territorial development and cohesion policy formulation, application and monitoring at different geographical levels. The data included in the ESPON Database is mainly coming from European institutions such as EUROSTAT and EEA, and from all ESPON projects. By doing this, the ESPON 2013 Database contributes to better understanding territorial structures, the current situation and past and future trends of different types of European territories in relation with various geographical contexts (from local to global) and within a large variety of themes.
