The first week will discuss urban politics, and the urban policy and strategy process and will show how local strategies for triggering urban change and transformations of local processes can be designed or can evolve as a consequence of public sector initiatives. Through real-world examples three kinds of complex strategies will be compared: city development strategies, area-based strategies and local economic development strategies.
During the second week sector, concepts related to urban finance and organization of local service delivery will be discussed. After the systematic presentation of basic local public finance and management concepts and techniques, sector studies of transportation and utilities will show the specific applications and a complex Capital Investment Planning exercise will connect financial and organization decisions to the strategy discussions of the first week.
