image The Global Planners Network this month requested dissemination assistance with an aspect of their work that will be the context for discussions about the IV World Urban Forum (WUF4) of UN Habitat, to be held in Nanjing this year .    
Prior to the fourth edition of the WUF, the World Congress of Planners will meet in Zhenjiang, China, to address the issues of urbanization, poverty and climate change around the world. These two events offer great opportunities for those involved in planning activities to make a greater impact on the global agenda. The key challenge is to increase the capacity to address the challenges faced in the XNUMXst century in planning sustainable settlements for the world's growing urban population.

To this end, the RTPI, with the support of the Commonwealth Association of Planners and the Lincoln Institute, will seek to assess the current capacity for planning around the world in terms of legislation, professional training, inclusive processes, and civic leadership and vision. Of future. Your success will depend on getting as many people working in planning activities as possible around the world to share their personal experiences and views. To achieve this, they have prepared a self-diagnosis web tool that will allow them to evaluate their personal experience. You can access it through the following link: http://tinyurl.com/2gbffk
