Urban and Territorial Planning for Health: a Training Manual
The "Integrating Health into Urban and Territorial Planning: A Practical Training Guide" is a comprehensive sourcebook developed by UN-Habitat in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO). Building on the sourcebook, this training manual addresses the need to incorporate health and well-being into urban and territorial planning. It is an essential tool for urban health professionals, planners, decision-makers, and civil society organizations involved in urban development.
The manual emphasizes global awareness, tackling common challenges, building capacity, and fostering stakeholder collaboration throughout the planning process. It is structured into modules closely aligned with the UN-Habitat/WHO sourcebook and includes practical exercises for hands-on learning. This resource aims to drive positive change in planning practice to create healthier, more sustainable urban environments.
