  • International Guidelines on Urban and Territorial Planning: Handbook and Tools for Localisation

    Training Events
    Venue: R4
    Lead Organization:
    • United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN- Habitat).
    Partner Organization:
    • International Society Of City And Regional Planners (ISOCARP).

    The International Guidelines on Urban and Territorial Planning (IG-UTP) are intended to be a framework for improving global policies, plans, design and implementation processes, which will lead to more compact, socially inclusive, better integrated and connected cities and territories that foster sustainable urban development and are resilient to climate change. While the IG-UTP serve as a compass to guide the review and reform of the planning system, a toolkit to operationalize and localize the principles is needed. A Handbook to implement the IG-UTP is being developed by UN-Habitat to support this process.    The Handbook will include a methodology for self-assessment of the local planning system, while also providing with a set of indicators for monitoring and evaluating this process. While the tools are in development, UN-Habitat aims to use networking platforms and events such as the Habitat III in Quito to share and seek validation of the Handbook and application tools. The objective of this event is to introduce the IG-UTP to the audience and illustrate their application through the Handbook in the path towards the implementation of the New Urban Agenda and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
