1 day
Participatory Activity
Toolbox Themes
  • ParticipationInclude diverse stakeholders, sectors, and perspectives to improve and make more inclusive the urban planning process and results.

Communicate the Land Management Plan to the entire community, inviting the public to provide feedback.

  • Validation of the Land Management Plan


The presentation and validation of the results of Block F Land management Plan should follow the logic indicated in the T41 Citizen Engagement Guide. This implies socialising and consulting the results, the process and the impact of the plan with those actors who were part of the formulation process of this block, as well as those who are not yet familiar with the proposal and it is important that they validate it. It should also be a moment to involve new stakeholder groups in the plan and to be able to count on them as promoters of the project with other potential stakeholders. 

The land management plan sets out concrete proposals in specific territories, as well as regulations and guidelines for the design of these proposals, all in technical language. It is important that the team manages through different activities to convey the plan's proposal in a friendly language so that it is clearly understood. This will likely mean that the process will require several iterations and time. 
The process must be open enough to receive feedback from the neighbours, as they are the ones who will be impacted by the proposals and are the ones who live in these territories. This is a key moment to present the plan together with the promoters and allies who have been part of the elaboration of the plan.  The plan could also be made available on the internet for public consultation for a period of time. To reach a wider audience and gather any additional input not captured during the presentation of results, this online engagement should be promoted via different channels.  

Consideration: It may be the case in some cities where the law requires a process of validation and consultation with neighbours. However, it is considered appropriate in those cities where it is not a requirement of the planning process, to make the effort to carry out  the three components of the guide (socialise, consult or validate).

1. Determine the content that requires validation and that which will give context to what will be validated in this activity.

2. Using T41 Citizen Engagement Guide and the results of T13 Participation Plan Guide, determine the activities that are best suited to the content to be presented.

3. Convene as outlined in the Communication Strategy (Activity 10) and the database collected from the Public Launch of the Planning Process (Activity 11)

4. Carry out the activities set out in step 2.

5. Document the results of the activities in a report.

6. Remind participants of the following appointments and next steps.

7. If needed, share the team's contact information with new interested stakeholders. 

8. Review the inputs from this activity e Public Hearing and incorporate them into the Land Management Plan.
