The Project is a result of the collaboration between UN-Habitat Kosovo Office and the municipality of Rahovec around spatial planning support and public spaces development and management, and citizen dialogue. It aims to promote urban regeneration and inclusive public space development through inclusive, transparent and innovative planning and design methods. Specially, the project is providing technical support to the International Design Competition process for the Central City Square in Rahovec municipality.
The International Design Competition for the Central City Square aims to put Rahovec in the map, through an inclusive, transparent and innovative process and to instigate a substantial public dialogue at neighborhood and at municipal level at different stages of the process, targeting various (non)institutional audiences, including women and girls, youth, elderly and persons with disabilities.
The project aims to achieve a planning and design solution for the Central City Square providing an access to safe, healthy and inclusive green & public spaces, in particular for women and children, elderly and persons with disabilities, and creating job and business opportunities. It also desires to achieve strengthened quality of local governance with performing institutional capacities to lead processes in support of integrated urban planning and development, transparency and accountability, and responsiveness to citizens. The project is financed by the municipality of Rahovec.
