Achieving Sustainable Urban Development



Philippines

ASUD addresses the gaps and deficiencies in the current urban planning processes and policies at the national and local levels and aims to strengthen the capacities of cities to effectively respond to the complex demands and harness development opportunities brought by rapid urbanization. It promotes principles supporting the provision of adequate public spaces and streets with good connectivity, high density, mixed land use, urban resiliency, good social mix and limited land-use specialization.
