Participatory Urban Planning

Participatory urban planning has a strong potential to transform the city and its neighbourhoods. However, it must be well planned if it is to be successful. This guidebook lays out the general aspects of the process developed by the MUEC. Its goal is to equip stakeholders and citizens by providing them with an overview of the steps to take and the players to include. The guidebook also presents the available tools and resources.
