Course Description & Objectives: 

Planning has suffered a crisis in confidence reflected in the growing consensus about its inability to manage fast changing cities effectively. One of the key reasons for this can be attributed to the existing gap between strategic planning, which is the norm at the top, and the unconventional actions of small communities at the bottom as they try to meet their largely neglected needs. Action planning introduces planners to the practical and common sense alternatives, linking the needs of community with the strategic plans of government. Because is methods are problem.
