Abstract

This paper attempts to focus on how planners and other stakeholders can assist the government’ efforts towards preparing and implementing the Rural Settlements and Villages Planning projects through adopting the Stakeholders Consultation Engagement Approach in the context of this conference’s main theme (Sustainable Development and Planning). For this purpose, the importance of this paper resides in facing the challenges related to achieving real sustainable development for the villages (and its surrounding rural settlements) to satisfy their future needs and aspirations for community facilities, infrastructure utilities and economic activities so as to become productive and self-contained entities. To meet the challenge mentioned above, this paper will highlight the lessons and experiences gained from best practice in the field of Stakeholders Consultation Engagement. Moreover, it seeks to identify the positive impacts of such lessons and experiences so as to apply them on Tenbik village case study.
