Support institutions

Within the strategic planning area, the AMB believes it is a priority to get involved in preparing, studying and coordinating all subjects related to planning and economic, social and general development of the metropolis. In this regard, it has two important institutional tools: the PEMB (Strategic Metropolitan Plan of Barcelona) and the IERMB (Institute of Regional and Metropolitan Studies of Barcelona).





These two institutions provide initiatives, as well as reflection and research works, in order to introduce the metropolitan reality to citizenship and institutions, and they work as support for the metropolitan reflection.

PEMB (Strategic Metropolitan Plan of Barcelona)

The PEMB (Strategic Metropolitan Plan of Barcelona) is a non-profit organization made up with the AMB, social and economic agents and other institutions of the metropolitan area.

It is aimed at having social impact and works as a sounding board of the metropolitan strategic planning.

Its proposals can be read in the Visió 2020 document, which provides key elements in the deployment of metropolitan strategies.

IERMB (Barcelona Institute of Regional and Metropolitan Studies)

The main work of the IERMB (Barcelona Institute of Regional and Metropolitan Studies) is to conduct activities related to studies, research and preparation of surveys in the economic, social, territorial, environmental and mobility areas at a municipal, metropolitan and regional level.

These activities aim to become supporting information for the decision-making process on public policies to be implemented in the metropolitan area through plans, projects and various actions.

The IERMB is a consortium made up with administrations, universities and economic agents, and led by the AMB and the UAB (Autonomous University of Barcelona).
