  1. URBACT Local Action Plans Peter Ramsden TPM 11 September 2008 Paris

  2. Purpose of the LAPs • To facilitate the exchange of experience and learning among city policy makers and practitioners in the field of sustainable urban development among local and regional authorities. Taking into account the acquis of the URBACT I Programme, it will draw lessons to increase their impact on local policies. • To disseminate widely the experiences and examples of good practice collected by the cities, and especially the lessons drawn from these projects and policies, and to ensure the transfer of know-how in the area of sustainable urban development. • To assist policy-makers and practitioners in the cities and managers of operational programmes under the Convergence and Competitiveness Objectives to define action plans on sustainable development of urban areas, which may be selected for Structural Funds programmes. • (URBACT Programme document, Section 3.3.2)

  3. There is no rigid definition of what a Local Action Plan has to be • Be creative • It should be of practical interest to practitioners and decision makers • It should aim to use the learning from exchange and other activities of the partnership in relation to the development of local policies and practices. •  Consider involving the other partners in a peer review process

  4. For the Fast Track networks • Provide the city with a concrete roadmap and range of solutions to tackle the problem identified at the start of the Network (in relation with the core theme); • Be drawn up in close cooperation with the Managing authorities so that the opportunity for funding through the operational programmes be maximised. This will happen in respect to national procedures concerning the regional competitive and employment programmes • (Programme Manual, Fact sheet 2b, Section 2)

  5. What will it cover? • A LAP may cover a district, the whole city or a larger metropolitan area (for related examples, see extracts from MILE & URBAMECO’sLAPs in Annex 1) • A regional authority may produce a Regional Action Plan (for an example of a Regional Action Plan, see Annex 2). • In cases where a national authority is involved, the Action Plan may take the shape of a national policy framework involving several national administrations, or a strategic plan concerning a specific administration / agency in charge of the policy issue addressed, etc.

  6. And for non city partners • Universities or research centres may take an active role in the development of an action plan for the city / local administration in which they are located by providing the research component in an action research project; • One or two universities involved in a Thematic Network or Working Group could support partners in developing their Local Action Plans, perhaps through the provision of methodological expertise for instance; • A group of researchers or a group of universities could develop a research program, for instance looking at local policies in a particular area of urban development;

  7. Stepwise • Step 1 Building the evidence base • Step 2 Stakeholder analysis • Step 3 Problem and option analysis • Step 4 Strategy formulation • Step 5 Intervention logic – going from goals to activities • Step 6 Adding indicators, setting targets and working out means of verification • Step 7 Risks and assumptions • Step 8 Bringing it all together and achieving coherence by using an adapted logical framework • Step 9 Final consultation on draft plan • Step 10 Formal signing of the Local Action Plan by all the partners
