Published: 29 Sep 2021
Abstract: More and more knowledge, economic and social resources and activities are concentrated in small and medium-sized cities as development centres; this applies in full to the EU countries. This poses huge sustainability challenges and responsibilities for cities municipalities. The UN has defined the comprehensive vision of the sustainable development (SD) in three dimensions: economic, social and environmental. The present study is devoted to the most objective mathematical identification of the priority action lines for the cities municipalities, which correspond to the functionality of the municipality and ensure optimization of the data-driven SD of the city in accordance with the globally accepted UN SD vision. To achieve the goal, the adapted data mining methods are used, which are well suited to discover and generate the knowledge about the existing regularities in data sets, similar to those describing SD. Recommendations for practical activities within the action lines are provided.
