UCLG releases a paper on the Role of Culture for Sustainable Development Highlighting the role of culture in the production of new sustainable development models and urban planning is a core focus of Culture Action Europe’s activities. At the beginning of 2015, Culture Action Europe, jointly with its partner, the Agenda 21 for Culture (UCLG), launched the Pilot Cities programme entitled “Culture in Sustainable Cities: Learning with Culture 21 Actions”. Today, we wish to draw your attention to the January 2016 policy paper published by the Agenda 21 for Culture (UCLG). Examining “why must culture be at the heart of sustainable urban development?“, the paper strongly contributes to the acknowledgment of culture as a central element in the paradigm of sustainable cities. Culture should be fully integrated in urban development planning, while taking care that it is not “made invisible” in this process, the study says.

Chiefs of State and Cabinet Members of Foreign Governments The Central Intelligence Agency publishes and updates the online directory of Chiefs of State and Cabinet Members of Foreign Governments weekly. The directory is intended to be used primarily as a reference aid and includes as many governments of the world as is considered practical, some of them not officially recognized by the United States. Regimes with which the United States has no diplomatic exchanges are indicated by the initials NDE. Governments are listed in alphabetical order according to the most commonly used version of each country's name. The spelling of the personal names in this directory follows transliteration systems generally agreed upon by US Government agencies, except in the cases in which officials have stated a preference for alternate spellings of their names.

Cities With the Worst Urban Planning: Jakarta, Dubai, and Dhaka Top Our List Bangladesh Proving once again that capital cities are a hotbed for planning disasters, Dhaka suffers from urban disfunction on just about every level. Transportation infrastructure is virtually nonexistent -- to the point where only 60 of the city's 650 major intersections have traffic lights, many of which may or may not actually work at any given time. Add to that the millions of rickshaws, cars, motorcycles, buses, and bicycles that have to share the roads every day, and it's a wonder anyone gets anywhere in less than a lifetime. Thanks to this dreadful transportation situation, most of Dhaka's nearly 15 million inhabitants are unable to commute from outside the city, and many are forced to endure slum conditions within city limits just to be able to get to work. This, in turn, leads to poor sanitation and water treatment issues. Not shitting where you eat is a great theory -- but one Dhaka's planners seem to have not accounted for.
