Launching the project "Elaboration of the Strategies of cities’s socio-economic development"


During the period of 4 - 13 September, 2013, the experts of the Institute for Urban Development will carry out workshops to launch the project "Elaboration of the Strategies of cities’s socio-economic development" in four cities of the Republic of Moldova. The project is funded by the USAID, Local Government Support Project in Moldova.


The project aims to: (i) building the capacity of beneficiaries in participatory planning for sustainable development, (ii) assisting the partner localities in elaborating the Strategies of socio - economic development for the period 2014-2020; (iii) promoting effective and accountable local governance and participatory decision-making process.


The Strategies will be elaborated by using the main sources of information on relevant international practices and methodologies which are at the base of programs formulation in urban management, using the terminology accepted by professional stakeholders of urban planning. Urban Management is an activity through which various resources are mobilized in order to make them act in a cooperative manner in the areas of planning, programming, budget formulation and implementation, and the operation and maintenance in order to achieve the development goals of the city (Davidson, 1996).


The overall goal of Strategy for development derives from the role that local government can play in the city administration, to coordinate all public and private actions initiated in its development. In this respect, the document proposes a complex set of programs, actions and projects according to the general accepted vision and strategic objectives that will derive from this vision.


To the launching events are invited the representatives of the local public authorities of level I, sectoral groups and residents of the target communities. Within the workshops the discussions will focus on the project’s goal, steps and results.


The specific activities of the project will be carried out according to the following stages: (i) Elaboration of Diagnosis of the current situation and Socio -economic Profile of the cities; (ii) Elaboration of the Strategy of socio - economic development for the period 2014-2020, (iii) The strategic document discussion at the Public Hearings and its approval by the City Council.


The Strategies will be elaborated in a participatory manner within the sectoral workshops of strategic planning. An Action plan and priority project fiches will be developed for each Strategy of socio - economic development.
