After its success in implementing “Smart Growth” capacity building modules conducted in the summer for planners from Palestine and Iraq, Ai is partnering with UNHABITAT on a new capacity building project. This project will deliver a series of multilayer interactive training modules aiming at building capacity for the Iraq Local Government Association (ILGA) and government officials who are involved in the urban planning efforts in Iraq.

The project‘s outcomes are compromised of two day training modules: The first module “Executive Training on Good Governance and Smart Growth Planning” is targeting the ILGA members. The other module “Smart Growth Planning”is targeting the government and municipal planning staff. Each module provides hands on experience and is adapted to some extent to the local Iraqi context. Each module also encompasses lectures, guest speakers, exercises, readings in Arabic, and site visits.
