From city management to citizens’ health

Dr. Tabatabaei said: Today, cities are growing and developing from different aspects. Some of them made significant progress technologically, some in economic aspects, and some others in urban diplomacy. For instance, free Wi-Fi is available for all citizens in New York in order to people have easy access to internet services.

However, it seems that one of the features received less attention in city management is the issue of health in new cities. According to WHO, there are major inequalities in the field of healthcare in developing and developed countries. Thus, if the health issue is on the agenda in the developing countries, it can be considered as a pioneer of development.

According to the statistics, although 16 per cent of the world population live in developed countries, only 10 per cent of illnesses occur in them. However, developing countries have devoted inly 20 per cent of GDP and about 12 per cent of the world health costs.

 However, the interesting thing is that the reason of many health problems and ways for preventing them is beyond the control and care of health sector in cities. City management can influence the problems directly or directly. In fact, good urban governance in the field of health tries to ensure whether opportunities, advantages, and services of health sector have been distributed widely, equally, and economically.

For example, air pollution is an urban dilemma that imposes heavy costs on the metropolises and people so that some researchers have estimated the costs more than 6.5 billion Tomans. Definitely, city managers’ decisions in this arena affect directly physical and mental health of citizens.

Therefore, it is necessary city managers pay more attention to the factor of citizens’ health more than before. All people and officials should realize that the area of city management decisions is not limited to issues such as building permits, but it can even affect their quality of life and health and this important issue has put more responsibility on the shoulders of city managers.

:: Dr. Pourzarandi, president of Iran Urban Economics Scientific Association (IUESA) in the meeting on “tourism; shortcut of economic development” ::
 | Post date: 2017/07/4 | 
Referring to the importance and role of tourism industry in economic development, Dr. Pourzarandi said it is clear to everyone that tourism is future hope of employment and economy in many countries since this sectors, as clean industry and an economic pinioned that is interrelated with other economic sectors, has transformed the fate of many countries.
Noting that according to the World Travel and Tourism Organization, tourism accounted for 7.6 trillion USD i.e. 10% of GDP in 2017 and it has created 292 million jobs equals one tenth of global employment, he added it is accounted for 6.6% of the world exports and 30% of service exports in this sector.
Saying that these figures indicate the increasing importance of this sector, particularly since we notice that there will be nearly 2 billion international tourists in 2030 and a close competition among countries and cities to attract tourists, he said tourism has had the fastest growth among the various sectors of the world economy for the sixth consecutive year. Despite geopolitical unrest and economic and political turmoil, tourism has boosted the lives of millions through job creation, poverty reduction and the promotion of development.
Stressing that the industry is capable of leading to sustainable employment and helping to bring world peace through bridging nations and cultures, he further said tourism is more sensitive to ecosystem than other parts of the economy, and it helps to preserve biodiversity in the earth.
Highlighting that for an increase of 30 tourists, a new job can be created, he said many countries have come to the conclusion that creating barriers and problems for tourists does not lead to security of the country, but also opportunities for economic growth and job creation will be lost.
Despite the fact that Iran is a fascinating and incredibly cheap destination, it is not still in a in a decent position in this industry, Dr. Pourzarandi said.
Dr. Pourzarandi added that Iran is well-positioned in terms of price competitiveness, which is measured by indicators such as ticket taxes and airport charges, hotel price index, purchasing power parity and fuel prices. This indicates that Iran is a cheap and economical destination for tourists, and it should plan for it as a country that is ranked 9th in the world in terms of cultural heritage sites.

Saying that according to the Economist, in terms of viability, Tehran had the highest growth rate in 2017 in the world’s cities, he said new urban management should strengthen the positive and strong aspects of Tehran’s metropolitan viability, including infrastructure, public transportation, health, security, participation and social cohesion.
Noting that cities’ viability and sustainability are both attractive and at the same time undeniable necessity for the future of human urban life, he said viability is, in fact, the achievement of good urban planning or sustainable development, and it includes many other concepts, such as quality of life, ecological sustainability, vitality, equality, justice, security, participation, health, etc.
Stating that across the world, governments, institutions, institutions, planners and researchers are all looking to find ways to build viable cities, he added these cities consume less energy and resources, have more cohesive communities, show innovation and creativity, and offer better living conditions.
Noting that the Economist in its annual reports examines the viability status of the world’s cities based on numerous social, economic, and environmental factors, and ranks them, he further said cities like Vancouver, Melbourne, Vienna, and Toronto are at the top of the world’s most viable cities every year.
In the 2011 report, 7 cities in Australia and Canada were among the top 10 cities in the world on the viability, which have maintained this trend by 2017, with only slight changes in their rankings, Tabatabaei said.
Stressing that in 2011, among 10 cities at the end of this table, with 140 cities, there were cities such as Harare, Dhaka, Lagos and Karachi, and Tehran ranked 133, he said but in the 2017 ranking, Tehran with its six steps made its way from the lowest ten cities and ranked 127th. Among the cities of the world, it has had the highest growth rate in terms of viability, so that a city like Dubai has a lower growth index than Tehran.
Secretary of IUESA said this growth trend is promising. "This growth indicates that moving in the path of sustainability and viability in the metropolis of Tehran is positive and, of course, needs to be accelerated further.
He counted the highest decline in 140 cities in Damascus, Syria, Ukraine and Detroit in the United States, and said one of the reasons for the growth and improvement of Tehran in the field of viability in recent years is undoubtedly the infrastructure and transportation, which over the years has been a step forward in promoting public transport and increasing metro and BRT lines. In addition, issues related to citizenship participation have also been effective in this regard.
Tehran has a much more favorable situation in some of the indicators of viability, such as security and health, and is located among the cities like Kuala Lumpur, Moscow and Dalian, he added.
The urban official considers environmental issues as urban management Achilles heel that should be regarded more than before. Solving the problems of this sector is not in the power and scope of urban management, but also it requires the synergies and efforts of various institutions of governance.
Another indicator that Tehran has made progress in recent years and it should be considered more is IT infrastructures since networking, intelligence and electronization of cities are one of the secrets of the high quality of life in these cities, he further added.

:: Dr. Hossein Mohammadpour Zarandi, president of Iran Urban Economics Scientific Association (IUESA): ::
 | Post date: 2018/04/6 | 
IUESA: Touching upon urban regeneration, Dr. Hossein Mohammadpour Zarandi, president of Iran Urban Economics Scientific Association said in the path of development, cities experience many changes and evolutions. If all economic and cultural aspects and infrastructures are not regarded, final progress will not be achieved even with the beginning of development process.
Emphasizing that sustainable development has been considered as the core of all the global guidelines and agreements, the president of IUESA said urban regeneration is a comprehensive and integrated approach to solve urban issues and challenges, resulting in sustainable progress in all economic, cultural, social, and environmental aspects.
Saying that some superficial views can change the identity of a city in development processes, he said any development plan should be based on the principle of urban regeneration particularly in countries with long-standing cultures and civilizations, such as Iran.
Considering urban regeneration far beyond the processes and achievements of urban renewal and development, he further said it is not true that urban problems and challenges are the result of a factor according to the urban recreation idea; internal capacities and capabilities of cities should be noted in the path of urban regeneration.
Noting that social capital is one of the other pillars of urban regeneration, he added public partnership should be the central axis of change toward urban development and any plan and program that ignore public partnership will be failed certainly. 
Stating that one of the most important aspects of urban regeneration is to pay attention to economic infrastructures of cities, he further said urban economy cannot be summarized only in municipal economy; therefore, this question should be answered as to what impact the economic aspect of this process will have on the quality of life of the people in any change process.
Accentuating that accurate definition of cities’ position should be presented in development process following general policies of resistance economy he said any city should have a strategic plan based on its opportunities and strengths in order to be in the path of urban regeneration. 
Referring to the global experiences, the president of IUESA further said For example, Paradise Project was implemented in the center of Liverpool, by taking into account the principles of urban regeneration, it became one of the largest shopping centers in the UK which it was isolated for many years, in such a way that after implementing this plan, Liverpool ranked among commercial cities in this country and accordingly 5000 jobs were created.
Touching upon South Africa as another world experience in the field of urban regeneration, he said the small town of Stellenbosch, which has suffered from racial discrimination for many years, has become a place for global tourism through marketing and branding methods, and today it is a brand, and ultimately. The project has resulted in full employment in this small town and this city is one of the safest places in South Africa.
Referring to the second international conference on urban economy, Dr. Pourzarandi said urban regeneration will be regarded at this event in order to formulate urban regeneration planning in accordance with cities’ advantages in the country in the path of progress.
Highlighting that cities’ structure and identity should be kept in the path of progress, he further said we require a serious revision in urban planning.
