Freetown, Sierra Leone
In 2008, URBACONSULTING, took part in the Pre-Identification Study for the Freetown Development Plan, in partnership with the French consultancy firm HYDRATECH and the Danish consultancy firm NTU. The objective was to advise the government, City Council and European Commission in defining priority actions to be carried out within the framework of the development Plan of the capital city. This consisted of identifying interventions having a large social impact and which could be implemented in the short-term. These interventions were proposed following a preliminary audit of the local situation which focused on: good governance, urban management, socio-economic development, and urban infrastructures and services.
