Regional Spatial Planning Strategy of Darfur

Regional Spatial Planning Strategy of Darfur

Author:
The Darfur region in Sudan stands out as a good example of the socioeconomic consequences a conflict can have on a territory and its basic resources, including the natural environment, human settlements at large and urban areas in particular. How best to identify and entrench the fresh spatial patterns that can underpin socioeconomic stabilization and future development of a huge area is the purpose of this report. The protracted conflict since 2003 has caused massive displacements of people to or around the main urban centres, causing a complex, rapid, unplanned and uncontrolled urbanisation process. This is resulting in severe environmental degradation and social stress.The Regional Spatial Planning Strategy of Darfur (RSPSD) is a functional methodology that has been designed to facilitate a smooth transition from humanitarian relief to early recovery, reconstruction and economic development in that region of Sudan. The RSPSD aims to maximise the benefits of infrastructural investment, identifying priorities against a background of scarce resources and capacities, in an effort to bring about a more balanced spatial development, ultimately contributing to peace, stabilisation and economic growth. The Strategy advocates for the establishment of a network of urban settlements in Darfur, which can support each other and work as productive and interconnected nodes benefiting their surrounding rural areas. This network can efficiently integrate a broad range of socioeconomic, basic services and infrastructure dimensions that will benefit the population of Darfur as a whole, while at the same time laying the foundations of its future development.This work was sponsored by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and was technically supported by the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) in close and constant coordination with the Government of Sudan and the Darfur States, in collaboration with the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) at the University of Twente, the Netherlands. A similar approach could be used in other countries or regions to devise the Spatial Development Frameworks which, in turn, set out and implement National Urban Policies. More info →
