The evaluation of UN-Habitat’s City Planning and Design Strategy (2012-2016) provides a forward-looking assessment of UN-Habitat’s City Planning, Extension and Design Unit (CPEDU), including the Global Public Space Programme (GPSP) and the Urban Planning and Design Lap (LAB). The evaluation findings and recommendations are useful in the context of the new UN-Habitat, including reform process. Key aspects include the stronger linking of UN-Habitat work with the SDG, the new Strategic Plan 2020-2025 formulation and the ongoing consultations for the restructuring of the organization.
The evaluation provides feedback, strategic inputs and learning opportunities for the project team and their partners. It also seeks to contribute to the dissemination of lessons and achievements to all project stakeholders: target beneficiaries, government bodies, donors, partners, project teams, UN-Habitat management and colleagues, as well as any other interested parties. This evaluation yielded ten core recommendations.
