Urban planning is a combination of land use, housing and transportation planning in urban environments. The goal of an urban planning professional is to design and improve communities both economically and socially. Urban management is defined as a set of instruments, activities, tasks and functions that assures that a city can function. That one gets water at home, that a road can transport goods and people, that land is provided for various activities essential for its residents, that public interest is safeguarded against individual and firms’ interests and that repairs are carried out on infrastructure networks before it starts affecting people’s life. Urban management assures that basic urban services are provided for the population and the various private, public and community stakeholders to perform and maximize their intrinsic roles in a harmonic manner.
