Methodological guidelines for CDS development in Tunisia
A City Development Strategy (CDS) is a way of planning the economic, social, environmental and spatial development of a city by defining a vision, identifying strategic axes and developing a global action plan over the short, medium and long term for sustainable and equitable growth. A CDS does not replace traditional planning instruments but is intended to complement them by developing the territory in a sustainable way and improving the standard of living of all citizens. These guidlines - developed as part of the Madinatouna project - address the development of CDS in Tunisian cities.
Cities of Refuge in the Middle East: Bringing an Urban Lens
This policy note by the World Bank aims to advance our understanding of urban forced displacement induced by conflict by looking at the issue from the perspective of receiving towns and cities. It explores why we need a different approach to addressing urban forced displacement; how to "think differently" along the humanitarian and development assistance spectrum; what we can learn from existing urbanization and other relevant experiences to inform humanitarian responses; and what "thinking differently" means for local, national, and international development actors.
