Tripoli’s Integrated Development Strategy

El Rassi, Chaouki

This study aims at formulating an integrated neighborhood plan for Dam w Farez, a recently subdivided area of the city of Tripoli, Lebanon. It seeks to address citywide issues—poverty, inadequate infrastructure, unemployment, traffic, and religious segregation—through zoning ordinances and policies. The research explores the previous studies that were conducted in the city, and describes the data collection process. Qualitative interviews were conducted in order to get a complete understanding of the city’s issues and the forces guiding development in the neighborhood. Green zoning ordinances, as well as land use recommendations and suggestions of public private partnerships were found to be ideal proposals for the municipality.
