The first day was an opportunity to share in a public meeting involving several persons competent in the field of air quality, from Valencia, Marseille (France), Tripoli (Lebanon) and Aqaba (Jordan).
The next two days were spent at the meeting of the Steering Committee of GOUV'AIRNANCE project and helped present the progress of the project in the territories concerned.Learn more
Understand the existing Mediterranean territorial dynamics requires taking the measure of the urban explosion that know all the countries of the South and East of the Mediterranean. This phenomenon in turn affects the territories including the cities who face with the growth of their population.
In most Mediterranean countries, states appear, sometimes for decades, their desire for a balanced territorial development and national urban systems. A planner wave emerged in the years following independence, the results are, and that's an understatement, far from conclusive beings.
The land tenure system in the countries of southern and eastern Mediterranean is a major impediment to rapid urban growth and balanced systems of land tenure are everywhere "pluralistic".
Modes of spatial planning that have been used so far and, to a large extent, are still in force in the countries of southern and eastern Mediterranean, the result of a strong centralist tradition that continues today. From independence until the 1980s, states have emerged as both guarantors of the unity of the nation, as engines of economic development and responsible functioning of public services (education, health, water, security ... ).
Faced ux territorial imbalances that penalize their growth regime and therefore job creation, the South and East of the Mediterranean are gradually led to change their modes of governance. The current model of centralized planning and organization of space is now breathlessly. He is unable to ensure a better territorial balance, regulate urban growth, lead and drive strategic approaches shared and differentiated at various levels of public action.
Beyond analyzes that can be done on the effectiveness of different systems of spatial planning, it is clear that thinking in terms of system of cities across the Mediterranean region is still in its infancy. There is very little analysis of urban forms, except to emphasize their heterogeneity. Imbalances are often due to geographical and climatic constraints.
