Public Spaces in Asia Pacific - Why Local Governments Need to Act

Case studies and best practices

Public Space is an important element of how cities and regions are planned and designed. Making an investment in public space means putting emphasis on people-centered development. This means understanding the linkages between the needs and hopes of people and how public space can serve to address these and enrich quality of life. Following the expression of commitment of UCLG ASPAC as declared by its members in February 2015 in Pasay City, Metro Manila, the Phillippines, the Network in cooperation with UN-Habitat has been working with cities and local governments in this region towards the creation and management of green, safe, inclusive, accessible and interconnected public space. This publication contains tips on building public space for all from the aspects of finance, regulations, planning and design. Several best practices from the Asian region are included to inspire others that everything is possible and many are doable.
