Equitable Economic Growth in your City


This toolkit is a diagnostic instrument. It is intended for use primarily by town and city administrations. Other users are likely to include policy analysts and researchers. The toolkit has been designed to help urban administrations understand the dimensions of equitable economic growth (EEG) in their town or city. More specifically, by using this toolkit town and city administrations will: • Discover how EEG is related to access to urban infrastructure and services, as experienced by individuals, communities and businesses, and subsequently, • Be able to devise policies and projects that can promote EEG by improving the access to infrastructure and services. In this toolkit manual you will find suggestions as to how to undertake that analysis, and how to devise policies and projects to promote EEG based on your analysis. More background information on the cities that have piloted the toolkit can be found at :
