ABOUT 'OUR CITY PLANS'

Our City Plans (formerly known as the Participatory Incremental Urban Planning toolbox, or PIUP) is a step-by-step methodology to assess, design, operationalize and implement urban planning processes. By following the toolbox’s proposed timeline of phases, blocks and activities, different urban stakeholders will better understand urban planning processes and can more effectively contribute their voices to the city’s vision, policies, strategies, plans, and projects.

Since its launch at WUF10 in February 2020, the toolbox has supported the planning process in 17 different projects in Mexico, Brazil, Cuba, Guinea Bissau, Guinea, Ethiopia, Angola, Sao Tome and Principe, and Mozambique. The updated version includes new tools and lessons learned on digital engagement during COVID-19. Phases 3 and 4, Operationalization and Implementation, are currently under development.
