"An urban lens in National development planning in Africa"
Dear Participants, this is our 3rd week since we commenced our discussion on the theme: “Integrating Urbanization in National Development Planning to promote Inclusive and Sustainable Cities”. The third week focuses on a guidebook developed by the ECA on the above subject. Participants will consider the pertinence of ECA’s Guidebook on how to integrate urbanization in national development planning, and its proposed methodology. The key question here is: To what degree is the Guidebook prepared by UNECA for the integration of urbanization in national development planning useful in the context of your respective countries?
The following guiding questions are set:
1. Is the guidebook relevant and timely?
2. What key lessons do you draw from the guidebook?
3. Do you intend to utilize the guidebook in your future national development planning?
In an attachment you will find executive summary of the guidebook in both English and French.
Your active participation is highly demanded and we would like to thank you ahead for such an active participation on the platform.
