At the same time, growing transport volumes, land consumption through settlements, insufficient management of water resources etc. cause massive pressure on nature. The ESOP however, analyses considerable development potential in larger cities and regions outside the core areas which can be better used for overall European development. Based on these analyses, the ESDP develops policy aims and options in particular on how to achieve a polycentric and balanced settlement structure, to reach equal access to infrastructure and knowledge, and 31 to wisely manage the natural and cultural heritage.
It proved however often difficult to reach a common approach to spatial development measures. So far, co-operation with several sectors and on such issues as elaboration of Baltic Agenda 21 was realised (Baltic 21 1998a, 1998b). There is also a constructive cooperation with such transnational organisations as the Union of the Baltic Cities and the Baltic Sea States Sub-Regional Conference. It seems that the implementation of the OP has strengthened a common understanding on spatial development issues.
The ESDP evaluates the cultural variety, concentrated in the relatively small ED territory as one of the most important development factors. At the same time, it analyses serious economic imbalances which hamper a regionally balanced sustainable development. Although differences in economic power between "prosperous" and "poor" regions are declining on ED level there are even growing disparities within most of the member states. Economic power concentrates in a core area between the cities London, Paris, Milan, Munich and Hamburg.
