Major cities in Pakistan have experienced rapid urbanization, with an average urban population growth of 4% per year since 1951. By 2030, about 60% of the country’s population will be living in urban areas, of which 12 large cities will have a population of more than 1 million inhabitants. While economic activities in urban areas produce more than 75% of national income (gross domestic product), about 15% of the urban population lives in poverty. The urban infrastructure is aging and has not expanded at the pace necessary to provide basic services or stimulate economic growth and create jobs.

People in urban Khyber Pakhtunkhwa face many challenges, such as limited access to land and housing, limited access to basic social services, and a lack of employment opportunities. Many urban citizens live in areas that are susceptible to natural disasters and pollution, thus creating pressures that can degrade the environment and further increase vulnerabilities. As the government’s ability to address these challenges is limited, these conditions have contributed to high levels of socioeconomic deprivation and

The PATA’s impact is aligned with renewed focus on inclusive and sustainable urban development in provincial policies and allocations. The outcome will be improved urban inclusivity, sustainability, and resilience in investment programming in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The TA outputs include : (i) sector road map for inclusive and sustainable urban growth endorsed ; (ii) Regional Development Plans prepared by provincial and local governments ; (iii) institutional capacity for implementation agencies built ; and (iv) lessons from pilots on accredited trainings and municipal business planning mainstreamed within the urban sector. The outputs will be implemented through a participatory process to ensure stakeholder consultations across the political spectrum and all income levels. Four themes run across all TA outputs : poverty alleviation, gender inclusivity, enabling small and medium-sized enterprises, and building resilience to disasters and climate change.
