Urban Development Strategies take spotlight in the Mediterranean
The City of Barcelona will be hosting a conference on Urban Development Strategies, from 14-15 March 2011.  Durban City manager Dr Michael Sutcliffe who is also the Chairperson of the Strategic Urban Planning Committee, will be at keynote speaker at the conference.

According to organisers, the objective of this conference is to lead the different Mediterranean agents (local authorities, governments, fund backers, cities network etc.) towards a common approach in their concepts of urban development and towards methodologies that can be adapted to a range of contexts.

The conference will draw on the experiences accumulated by their organisers - the CMI, based on the exploratory work done by the World Bank’s Marseilles Antenna (2007), the Medcities network which has taken part in various capacities in providing technical assistance to many Mediterranean cities, as well as the Cities Alliance networks, the World Bank Institute, partners and co-funders of the conference, with AFD, ICLEI and GTZ associated partners.

MILE is proud to be a network partner of MEDCITIES, and will undertake to share the lessons learned at the event to its other learning partners.
