I just noticed this post about European urban landuse vector data: 

It might be interesting for local communities within the EU who are 
seeking to improve landuse data in OSM in their area.
This data can be downloaded here: 

The license seems to be compatible with CC-BY-SA or the ODbL, as long as 
the source is attributed:

    EEA standard re-use policy: unless otherwise indicated, re-use of
    content on the EEA website for commercial or non-commercial purposes
    is permitted free of charge, provided that the source is
    acknowledged (http://www.eea.europa.eu/legal/copyright). Copyright

However, before anyone proceeds importing this in OSM, it might be 
better to check with the EEA if their license is indeed compatible. And 
of course it is _always_ a good idea to check with your fellow local 
community members first, to see if this really adds value to OSM!
