Historique

The Saudi Vision 2030 emphasized the role of urban planning and management as fundamental for city prosperity. In fact, Saudi cities have grown significantly in recent decades to accommodate about 82% of the total population. Although this urban growth has been accompanied by the steady development of advanced infrastructure, it poses daunting challenges to service provision across the vast areas in 13 regions. Along with this, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)can provide a robust framework for local development policy. In this respect, local and regional governments can support the achievement of the SDGs.

A key result sought by the Project is strengthened institutional capacity and coordination of MOMRA Deputyship of town planning with relevant institutions working on urban planning mandates. That will depend primarily on communication and establishment of systems but also on fostering partnerships. The partnership with the different central, regional and local stakeholders will be one of the key outcomes of the Project, which will concomitantly enable MOMRA TO play its regulator role and phase out from provision. The Project will build on lessons learned and develop tools to scale up. The Project will also draw on UNDP and UN-HABITAT extensive networks to foster partnerships between countries and institutions.

This project has been designed to boost the capacity of the Government to achieve the objectives of the

National Spatial Strategy (NSS)along with their alignment with the Vision 2030. The project which will be

implemented by UNDP jointly with UN-Habitat envisages the support to the NSS implementation Office established inside the deputyship of town planning with specific focus on the following outcomes:

  • Improved capacity for the Implementation of the National Spatial Strategy (NSS) 2030.
  • Improved access to urban data between line ministries in NSS2030 platform Improved localizing sustainable urban development at national, regional and local authorities.

In addition to these outputs, the project is designed to provide advisory services in novel areas of interest to the urban planning and management sector. The project, based on available budget, will provide technical assistance to various activities operated within the deputyship of Town Planning including the emerging urban planning issues within the deputyship mandate.
