Urban areas are the dynamic engines of the global economy and contribute about 70% to global GDP and carbon emissions. Thus, cities have a huge potential for poverty alleviation and mitigating climate change. It is imperative to support cities in shifting towards a more holistic approach to urban development as well as to assist them in financing and managing urban infrastructure in an integrated manner.
The overall objective of the SECO - World Bank Urbanization Partnership is to bring cities in the developing world to a point where they balance environmental, economic and social trade-offs to urban development.
The project targets three levels of intervention:
- Building the Evidence through Urbanization Reviews
- Promoting Integrated Projects through coordinated planning, connecting and financing
- Enabling evidence-based decision making (implementation of the Urbanization Reviews)
|Effets à moyen terme||
In the countries of operation, urbanization and city development are elevated to a national development objective, cutting across concerned line ministries. Furthermore, government actions are much more coordinated across sectors and among neighbourhoods within cities.
Principaux résultats attendus:
Finalization of at least four additional Urbanization Reviews and eight in-depth Policy Guidance Notes per year.
Initiation of at least three integrated infrastructure projects per year- initiation and implementation of at least three projects per year focusing on planning and connecting.
Establishment of a Mayors? Dashboard with standardized and open-source data systems of comparable city indicators. The full set of indicators will be collected for not less than six cities per year.
