Enabling Conditions

To be able to plan actions properly you need to understand the general conditions that define the scope for action of your city. What are the legal frameworks? How is financing organised? Are there urban strategies? Is participation possible, and so on. Fill in the matrix and you will have a good overview.



Understanding the different enabling conditions for urban action in your specific context.


Download the matrix and analyse the enabling conditions according to the categories. Assess the city’s overall situation (poor, satisfactory, good, excellent), name current gaps and challenges in your country/city, and list ideas to overcome these gaps in order to increase the scope for action.


You do not need to work on all eleven categories. Feel free to choose a few according to your own priorities and where you feel comfortable in analysing the topic.
