Médinas 2030

The program on the Renewal of Historic City Centers (Medinas Initiative 2030) aims at defining a strategic framework for project implementation encompassing the different dimensions that should be considered in such renovation operations: architectural, societal, financial, and so on.

The project will take stock of the experiences accumulated in a number of countries and organizations – both international and national – with a view to identify the key parameters and the best ways to involve different partners, particularly the local population and related authorities.

The EIB’s interest in urban heritage events in 2008 and 2010 led it to entrust a preliminary documentary study to the AVEC / UATI team, reinforced by the Institute of Urban Planning and Development of the Sorbonne and supported by the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.

This program aims at integrating strategies to urban regeneration and laying the ground for adequate financing tools. More specifically, it will raise awareness among public decision makers of the importance of urban regeneration in the historic city areas of southern Mediterranean countries.

The program will also identify integrated mechanisms and strategies to urban regeneration, covering spatial, economic and social planning, including public governance and consultation questions. This work will be a step to then identify and develop specific financing tools for this type of operation.

The program is led by the EIB, in close partnership with the AFD and the World Bank.
