The city of Sidon has reached the final stages of designing a project that will change the course of its future. The "Public Land pooling and parcelization of east Wastani Area" project is the main milestone linked to Sidon's Urban Sustainable Development Strategy and a major element of its action plan. Sidon is mobilizing its community, national and international institutions to implement this project based on modern international norms. As the city is subject to rapid transformation under the pressure of ad-hoc urbanization, the project is comprised of a land-pooling study and a master plan to make out of east Wastani area development a model for urban development. Sidon city has made from this project another case study of effective public participation since it has a strong foundation for participation based on an active civil society and a determined political will that empowers the municipality as the city's main development actor.The city of Sidon has the political determination to plan all its development projects within a strategic framework based on a structured public debate to enhance policymaking.
Looking forward to a Greater Lebanon
A French G-7
