A City Development Strategy (CDS) is a tool that helps a city harness the potential of urbanization through strategic planning. It is an action-oriented process, developed and sustained through participation, to promote equitable growth in cities and their surrounding regions to improve the quality of life for all citizens.
These detailed methodological guidelines provide a framework for the implementation of a CDS – a participatory strategic planning process – in Tunisian cities. Developed by MedCities with the collaboration of UNDP, CILG-VNGi, GiZ and FNVT as part of the Madinatouna project, they provide thorough, step-by-step support for the various phases, methods and participatory activities to be implemented, in the concrete context of Tunisian cities.
