- Scaling Up Strategic City Planning:
In order to pioneer such a vision there will need to be a consensus amongst the actors involved. Additionally, due to the many investors and parties engaging in the strategic planning, it is a must to bring about a platform for consultation. The actors are external donors, city federations, local governments, communities and NGOs. With the correct implementation of coordination, these actors can work in harmony and synchronisation with one another for maximum efficiency. The Cities Alliance programme will be working with eight secondary cities of Tunisia to engage in city development strategies with the goal of disseminating strategic urban planning. The initiative aims to collaborate across the whole country instead of its current structure where much of the focus is traditionally directed towards the coastal cities.
- Setting Up Participatory Approaches to City Management
This area focuses on increasing interaction between cities, communities and the national government in terms of urban planning. The Country Programme vision seeks to bring additional resources to streamline the implementation of the, already in place, national programme. Additionally, to implement change, there are numerous actors supporting Tunisia, which include the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the European Union and the World Bank.
- Informing the National Urban Debate:
This focus will attempt to help Tunisia better prepare to deal with key issues related to cities that are likely to be confronted in the near future. Information is key, and this reform will allow for a more informative country and a system that works in cooperation and understanding of management and development processes. The Cities Alliance initiative hopes to initiate debate and a strong flow of information on topics such as: regionalisation, the role of cities, intercity collaborative governance, gender equality in city development and city management, and the elaboration of a national urban policy.
