Participants of the session will gain knowledge and capacity on how to turn their plans into strategic, integrated, measurable and fundable strategies to tackle their local needs and challenges.
- Why is a strategic approach towards urban development important?
- The big picture about the design and implementation of integrated strategies with some examples and how we pass from good strategy to good implementation based on the Integrated Action Plans study of URBACT
- The Bonn case: how to localise Sustainable Development Goals?
- Some other city cases: Waterford (IE) and Fundao (PT) what makes a strategy a good strategy?
Article 7 of ERDF on Sustainable Urban Development (current programming period 2014-2020), allowed cities to set-up integrated urban strategies that are now fully or partly funded by Structural Funds. For 2021-2027, the EC will continue this approach and improve it taking on board the lessons learned and good practices from the Urban Development Network, URBACT, JRC and other relevant stakeholders.
