Punjab Spatial Strategy

The Punjab Spatial Strategy (PSS) is a World Bank funded initiative being implemented by the Government of Punjab. The Punjab Spatial Strategy will assess the potential of Punjab’s growth corridors and growth nodes and prioritize and coordinate investments in the province. This strategy will inform in particular public investments related to connectivity infrastructure, urbanization and development of industrial zones, which will be reflected in the MDTF (Medium-Term Development Framework – a multi-year indicative budget) before approval through the ADP (Annual Development Plan – the annual budget) process.

The Urban Unit is the executing department/agency responsible for development of the spatial strategy and will also implement capacity building necessary for linking this to the Medium and Annual Development Budget planning cycles in close collaboration with concerned relevant departments, local governments and other stakeholders. The PSS Cell has been established at the Urban Unit to act as the headquarters for this extensive project. Nodal Offices have been established in Lahore, Gujranwala, Sahiwal, D.G. Khan, Bahawalpur, Multan, Rawalpindi, Sargodha and Faisalabad Divisional Headquarters and Departments to ensure stakeholder participation and province wide implementation.
