Good governance arrangements contribute to more transparent, inclusive, responsive, and effective decision-making. This webinar looks at the key issue of governance when applied to sustainable urban development. It will include the direct experience of policy-makers in facilitating coordination between different levels of government, and in identifying and involving all relevant stakeholders, including ways that strengthen citizen engagement.
The UDN webinars provides insights from policy makers and expert guest speakers on how to tackle the main challenges policy-makers face when designing and implementing sustainable urban development strategies as supported by Cohesion Policy.
The webinars are based on the findings of the Handbook of Sustainable Urban Development Strategies published by the Joint Research Centre in collaboration with DG REGIO.
Following the structure of the Handbook, the UDN webinars will be composed of six sessions, each one focusing on one of the building blocks of the EU integrated approach to urban development, namely: strategic dimension, territorial focus, governance, cross-sectoral integration, funding and finance and monitoring
