Chapter 7 Policy Points
- Integrated, multi-sectoral planning approaches have a strong success record and should be used in many more cities and regions.
- Local circumstances, needs and requirements must remain pre-eminent in urban planning, so are gender considerations and involvement of— and responsiveness to— the diverse populations.
- Plans should be prepared at various geographic scales and integrated to support sustainable and coordinated road, transit, housing, economic development and land use across geographic and political boundaries.
- In developing countries, education and training for professional planners should be increased and capacity for
planning education be enhanced, concomitantly.
