Dear Reader,
Cities arouse our curiosity, they fascinate us. They inspiredirectors to make films, like Metropolis and City of God,writers like Günter Grass and Cees Noteboom to writestories about Calcutta and Marrakesh, and composerslike Heiner Goebbels to compose music such as SurrogateCities. The city engages us. In response to onrushingurbanization, Technical Cooperation is now even moreattentive to the city. As Peter Herrle, professor at theTechnical University Berlin observed: “Development policyis turning into urban policy.”GTZ has taken up the challenge and set its sights on thisissue with our spotlight of the year, Focus – Fascination –Future: Designing tomorrow’s cities. The Eschborn Dialogue2005 on the same topic provided a professional platformfor stimulating discussion and specialist exchange. Inaddition to GTZ Head Office and field personnel, we werepleased to welcome more than 200 speakers and partici-pants from other federal government ministries and depart-ments, municipalities, national and international organiza-tions, business, industry and academia.The Eschborn Dialogue made one thing clear: urban devel-opment is more than just a technical or sectoral issue.It is highly political. This is where people live out democracy,where civil rights are exercised, and where interests arearticulated and negotiated. As the range of workshop themes showed, urban devel-opment has many facets, from urban culture throughenvironmental issues to international urban networks. Whatwe now have to do is turn all the valuable words into deedsin anticipation of the big events coming up over the nextfew years. The World Urban Forum III takes place next yearand the theme for the EXPO World Exposition in 2010 is‘Better City – Better Life’.My thanks go to everyone who made the Eschborn Dialogue2005 possible: the speakers, the people in charge of theworkshops, the organization team and all those who tookpart.
