Phase 1: Assessment

Where are we now?
This phase aims to understand and assess the context and the territory in which the plan will be developed, together with the current planning frameworks, in order to define the most suitable urban planning process. The internal and external resources available for the project are reviewed, along with the constraints of the local government in terms of time, budget, expertise, territorial ownership and stakeholder engagement. Based on the results, the plan's objectives and constraints are defined. Then, a tailored participatory process is established to ensure the achievement of the objectives with a sustainable, resilient, inclusive, and impact-oriented approach, supported by a strong stakeholder engagement. Finally, an analysis and diagnostic will be elaborated to understand the territory, its opportunities and challenges, that will be integrated into the plan.
