ADIZMB is a member of the Federation of metropolitan areas and urban agglomerations in Romania (FZMAUR – http://fzmaur.ro/wordpress).

FZMAUR consists of metropolitan areas and urban agglomerations established under law no. 215/2001. The federation is a private legal entity, non-patrimonial, non-governmental and apolitical, established for the purpose of representing members in relation to central public authorities as well as in relations with international bodies or institutions.

The mission of FZMAUR is to contribute to the polycentric development of Romania, through active involvement in the process of achieving territorial, social and economic cohesion, at the level of metropolitan areas and existing urban agglomerations. Metropolitan areas and urban agglomerations are currently the “engines ”of Romania’s sustainable development, being places where the economic and social future of this country is ”built”.

ADIZMB has joined the Civinet Romania network-assigned to cities in Romania, with the aim of exchanging experience and best practices in the field of sustainable urban mobility.

The network encourages the implementation of sustainable urban mobility strategies and is funded by the European Commission as part of the CIVITAS programme (https://civitas.eu).


CIVINET Romania is a CIVITAS INITIATIVE, supported by the European Commission and has the role of disseminating best practices in the field of urban mobility and green urban transport. The network is open to local authorities (municipalities, county councils, metropolitan areas, ministries), but also to NGOs, research centers, universities and other organizations (both public and private sector) that have an interest in the field.

ADIZMB is part of the METREX platform-founded in 1996, following the Glasgow Conference of metropolitan regions. (https://www.eurometrex.org)

METREX is a professional platform that connects people in the public sector to work together to build a productive, healthy, inclusive and sustainable future for Europe.

The activities of the network are means of interconnecting members to explore common interests or challenges at the metropolitan level.

Currently, METREX is composed of 50 regions and metropolitan areas in Europe and is in continuous development.
