C: True Smart & Green Urban Planning and Governance


Approaches and Methods for integrated participative planning and enhanced forms of governance supporting sustainable development and management of urban areas will be discussed in in the framework of this sub-theme. This includes potential answers to the following questions: How can governments and organizations realize integrated urban planning processes with key stakeholders? Which targets and reform strategies can be established to allow for transition to sustainability, in a form that is both, open, adaptive and accountable, allowing for transparent, review and assessment? How can political or sectoral conflicts and vested interests be transcended to enable multi-stakeholder participation and partnerships to be established in decision-making and implementation? Are there good lessons we can draw upon to encourage and facilitate wider public awareness, education (both formal and informal) and capacity building to help empower individuals and communities to take direct action towards sustainable development and environmental protection? How can the sustainability of integrated participative urban planning, management and governance be assessed and certified?

Keywords: Institutions, reform, integrated planning, management & governance, stakeholder participation, welfare, tools and systems for the quantification of sustainability aspects, assessment and certification tools LEED ND, BREEAM, CASBEE, DGNB.
