​Accelerating the Preparation and Implementation of Catalytic Urban Redevelopment Projects: Institutional and Financial Tools (7 - 9 March 2016)

Summary

This interactive technical workshop was aimed at enhancing city decision-makers’ knowledge and technical capacity to implement a range of institutional and financing tools for catalytic urban land development projects. The training was designed to provide a conceptual and practical overview of:
  1. the real estate market, capital market and land economy drivers behind this process
  2. how cities can promote private investment in the urban core; and
  3. global best practices in development processes, partnering and financing to help cities understand and effectively intervene in these processes. Structured as a “working retreat,” the workshop combined lectures, expert panel discussions and facilitated strategy sessions among participants for Metros to refine and further develop their policy and financing tools for a representative project or redevelopment initiative in their city.
As such, this event sought to advance both individual’s knowledge and team-based project strategy in a series of dynamic interactive sessions facilitated by subject matter specialists.
