The overall objective of the action is to promote the sustainble development and the social cohesion of Mediterranean cities through the use of urban sustainable development strategies (USUDS) and networking.

The constitution of a network of cities in the region to advance USUDS will be carried out on tow parallel fronts: the cities that have already developed Strategic Plan experiences and those cities that want to develop them, and look toward the network assistance. One of the networking main activities is the creation of specialised centres for the transfer of knowledge (KTC) based in Málaga, Sfax and Al Fayhaa.

Therefore, KTC Malaga is creating a stable group of experts on sustainable urban development and social cohesion strategies to facilitate the knowledge sharing about methodology and best practices, and to promote cooperation projects on urban strategic issues; and creating working groups on specific issues in order to develop new methodologies that will be collected and disseminated to all the interested groups.

From there, will be carried out the publishing of materials and guidelines, training of technicians and managers, and personalized advice to responsible for urban strategic planning processes.

We have established three thematics blocks:

1. Continuous innovation in strategic planning processes
2. Monitoring, evaluation and reformulation of strategic plans
3. Strategic alliances and public-private participation
