Our City Plans: An incremental and participatory toolbox for urban planning

What is the Our City Plans? 

Our City Plans is a global toolbox that guides and supports local governments and urban actors to better understand, customise, and develop inclusive and integrated urban planning processes, using a participatory and incremental methodology that adapts to their local context. By guiding users through an adaptable step-by-step methodology, actionable instructions, downloadable tools, additional resources, and diverse planning experiences, Our City Plans democratises and articulates a comprehensive planning framework developed and utilised by UN-Habitat.  

The toolbox was created by a multidisciplinary team in a collaborative effort between different branches, sections and Regional Offices, steered by the Urban Practices Branch. It is the result of UN-Habitat's work in over 100 participatory planning processes implemented in different global contexts since 2014.
