The SymbioCity Approach seeks to improve the living conditions of people in urban settlements. The approach is based on a holistic understanding of urban development. It is synergistic and integrates environmental, economic, and socio-cultural outlooks.
The SymbioCity Approach explores opportunities to strengthen local governments and local institutions and their capacity to sustain local development.
The approach can be applied in a range of development processes, such as when conducting multi-disciplinary or sector reviews of the urban environment, or as support when formulating strategies for short, medium and long term development on different urban scales – region, city, or city-district.
