Joint Internal Workshop on Urban Operational Plan

04 December 2014

This learning event created synergy that benefited the Urban Sector Group (formerly Urban Community of Practice) network members, particularly those working in Asian Development Bank (ADB) resident missions (RMs) in supporting the Urban Operational Plan (UOP) implementation and ultimately delivering innovative and meaningful urban projects around Asia and the Pacific. ADB staff, RM participants, and resource persons engaged in knowledge sharing; discussed good ideas and experiences among cities; and interfaced on the latest developments, potential pathways, as well as emerging mechanisms under the Integrated Urban Planning and City Cluster Development towards a Green, Inclusive, Competitive, and Smart City.
