ABOUT UN-HABITAT URBAN PLANNING AND DESIGN LAB
The Urban Planning and Design Lab is an initiative from UN-HABITAT to promptly respond to the requests of national and local governments to support sustainable urban development.
The focus areas of the LAB are:
- Citywide strategies
- Planned city extensions (and new towns)
- Urban infill, densification and renewal
- Planning guidelines and capacity development
- Climate change and urban planning
.The LAB acts as the integrative facility of the Future Saudi Cities Programme (FSCP) in which spatial planning is used as the tool coordinating economic, legal, social and environmental aspects of urban development, translating them into concrete and implementable projects that materialize the normative work of UN-HABITAT. These urban strategies generate value, economic development and jobs.
