The increasing socio-spatial segregation, especially in large cities, as well as increased mobility and migration presents new challenges for urban policies and planning. In the face of these structural changes, how can one reach or guarantee social cohesion? And how does one cope with the constant growth of megacities and informal settlements, especially in Africa, Asia and South America? This requires inclusive and sustainable urban development strategies and planning instruments that guarantee equal access to service delivery, public spaces and participatory opportunities. adelphi advises cities and relevant actors in creating these strategies and instruments and develops tailor-made participatory and dialogue formats that strengthen the exchange between municipalities and civil society and establish new forms of cooperation.
