IFHP Conference Singapore

Date(s): 
Friday 30.05.2014
Location: 
Singapore

One of Singapore’s key success factors is Integrated Planning. Where else is this an established planning approach? What are the governance structures behind the processes?

Good Urban Governance in Integrated Planning: the key to success?

The conference will critically look at international projects of integrated planning, how they are governed, and will encourage to identify and tackle the flaws. This approach can open up new paths to good urban solutions. Different perspectives from three continents in a panel discussion will give you additional inspiration.
 

As a big add-on, Singapore’s World Cities Summit (WCS) 2014 will take place back-to-back in this vibrant city from 1-4 June. The IFHP Singapore Conference is an official co-located event of the World Cities Summit 2014. Come to Singapore for two unique events that team up to give you a fruitful urban learning experience and countless networking opportunities – both small and big scale.

Conference theme

In general terms, integrated planning is a joint planning exercise that ensures participation of all stakeholders and affected departments. Its objective is to examine all economic, social, and environmental costs and benefits, in order to determine most appropriate options and to plan a suitable course of action. The inter-related nature of urban development challenges requires an integrated approach that promotes actions at various levels simultaneously. In essence, therefore, it stands for moving away from sectorial approaches and working for inter-sectorial action directed towards sustainability.

 

Morning: “Integrated Planning – Tackling the Flaws”

Integrated planning is applied differently in different countries and continents. The presentations in the morning session will showcase specific urban development projects on integrated planning and their governance. They will exemplify various approaches, their strengths, but also their flaws and gaps.

 

Afternoon: “Governance for Integrated Planning – Perspectives from 3 Continents”

Perspectives on integrated planning from Europe, Asia and North America will be discussed. The key focus will be on the resilience of the different approaches in connection to future challenges of cities, like climate change, economic growth and social inclusion. New approaches to urban governance will also be a key-discussion point, especially how a strong collective impact can be created by new ways of tackling challenges in partnerships between state, market and actors in the civic society.
