In Brief

About the project

The consequences of climate change are expected to strongly impact Israel’s mixed cities. Most of these cities suffer from societal and economic shortcomings as well as insufficient planning. Additionally, Israel’s urban planning system is hardly accessible for marginalized communities such as the Arab minority. These issues contribute to the emergence of inter-community tensions and conflict. The Arab Center for Alternative Planning (ACAP) seeks to intervene in those fields. The stark impact of urban planning on every aspect of everyday life makes urban development a sensitive and contested subject. However, planning processes are complex and largely intransparent for citizens and many decision-makers alike. The project aims at embedding environment and climate change at all levels of urban planning, decision making, and action.
