Partnership with Strelka KB

On 11 September, at the 55th ISOCARP Congress in Jakarta, a partnership agreement between Strelka KB and the research spin-off of the International Society of City and Regional Planners — ISOCARP Institute — has been announced. The organisations will join forces to further develop the methodology, designed by Strelka KB, which will allow them to improve cities by creating comfortable, human-focused urban environments and housing. 

Martin Dubbeling, President of ISOCARP: “On behalf of ISOCARP, the team of experts has reported to me that they are convinced that the “Integral Guidelines for Urban Territories” is an excellent document, that reflects the current challenges and proposes tools and solutions to improve Russian cities and the quality of life of their inhabitants”

Denis Leontev, CEO of Strelka KB: “Collaboration with ISOCARP is a recognition of Strelka KB’s methodology and approaches to the development of cities by the international professional community,” Strelka KB CEO Denis Leontyev noted.

The agreement between Strelka KB and ISOCARP Institute touches on three key fields. One part of their joint work will be the development of practical solutions: projects for strategic development projects, methodical guides, master plans, urban planning regulations, and urban consulting services. The other two fields are research and education. The research is focused on the development of tools which will allow cities to evaluate the quality of realised projects and will allow for the improvement of legal mechanisms in the urban development sphere. The organisations will work to increase the qualifications of specialists in the field of urban planning and management (with online and offline courses and methodological guides). 

The agreement will allow them to attract additional experts from international organisations to the development process for Strelka KB projects in the fields of urban development and planning, housing policy, and international, regional, and national development banks. 

This is not Strelka KB and ISOCARP Institute’s first time working together. The opinions of ISOCARP’s experts were taken into account in the development of the Integrated Guidelines for Urban Development. For the Moscow City Government’s “Moscow Street” programme, Strelka KB received the ISOCARP Award for outstanding achievements in the planning field. Strelka KB CEO Denis Leontev presented the project to the audience of the 54th ISOCARP Congress in Norway.

The Integrated Guidelines for Urban Development is a universal document that can help many countries that are undertaking active work to develop their urban environments, tackle the challenges of urbanisation and active construction, and handle the lack of qualified personnel. 

ISOCARP Institute is the research spin-off of the International Society of City and Regional Planners (ISOCARP) and specialises in research communication, citizen engagement, urban advocacy and professional training. Initiated as a world-class knowledge bank and think tank for planning excellence, it empowers individuals, organisations and institutions to achieve better human settlements. Its prime objectives are strengthening cross-border collaboration globally, upholding professional excellence in planning, advancing sustainable planning, increasing awareness of major development trends and promoting best practices, while serving as an Urban Think Tank facilitating the generation and dissemination of knowledge for better cities.
