Inclusive Governance for Sustainable Cities
The Inclusive Governance for Sustainable Cities project was developed under Support for Sustainable Cities program conducted by TESEV since 2016, with the support of Friedrich Naumann Foundation. The project aims to raise awareness and advocacy for inclusive local governance.
During the project, roundtable meetings were held in Istanbul, Izmir, Şanlıurfa on inclusive local governance with reference to four fragile groups, women, children, young people and migrants. In each city, civil society and local government representatives cama together with a focus on a fragile group and discussed how they were included in urban governance and how sustainable development goals were included in this process. Finally, digital solutions for inclusiveness were discussed at “Sustainable Izmir” conference with broad participation, in Izmir.
Within the scope of the project, discussions on policy suggestions regarding women, young refugees, and children inclusiveness in urban governance was published.
