Demographic pressures, migration, pollution, and improvement of living standards ask that city management continuously rethink their way of dealing with the urban environment.
Urban management is a new business area. Many cities offer incentives for investors and futuristic infrastructure. Competition among cities and from emerging cities to attract investors is getting tougher.
Pöyry helps urban areas to update their facilities by providing consulting services in transportation, environmental management, water supply/distribution and public management.
We assist city management by conducting physical and socio-economic surveys, preparing city development strategies/plans, as well as carrying out construction, design and maintenance procedures.
We have assisted cities such as those in Vietnam (Hue, Dong Hoi, Quy Nhon, Nha Trang) with multilateral funding, to modernise their infrastructure and public administration.
We provided in-situ expertise in various domains such as community participation, urban planning, project management/construction supervision and economic/business development.
