Spatial Visioning Reflections: The Heartland of the West Bank
This magazine is more than a regular policy report: it reflects the work experience and mutual learning process between local stakeholders, practitioners, civil society, and the UPAT team and is integrated in different articles. While the UPAT spatial vision focuses on the heartland of the West Bank, IPCC contributed with a spatial vision for the future State of Palestine.
Discussing with Sameer Eisheh, he emphasises the importance of a multimodal system in improving local livelihoods in a future Palestine. Urban design is linked to place making: Asmaa Ibrahim introduces the co-design projects of UN-Habitat for different communities in Area C that do not need building permits for implementation.
The micro scale was also the focus for a team of students from An-Najah University and the Bard College, who joined the UPAT team for a rapid-design workshop.
