Designing logo identity and public participation - Bijar city


From the outset, we wanted people in Bijar city to remember us with their sense of belonging to their city of residence, not by bringing them back to past but by helping them to move toward the future which approached us to create a logo identity for Bijar city that represents visions and dreams of a brighter future. Accordingly, during 2-weeks period, the citizen were asked about their perception of "the Urban" in the hometown. To do so, we used an online participation platform through which we collected citizen's image map in order to design the logo of Bijar. Designing the logo was our first online relationship with citizens.
In keeping with perception map of Bijar inhabitants, we chose green for logo color scheme with inspiration from the natural assets and heritage of Bijar, also a network pattern designed with respect to main physical- special icons of the city. The most important aspect of the logo is that it recognizes peripheries of the city as a mutual sphere of urban and nature presence that could be called the ‘cultural landscape’.

Local Pathways Initiative - Initializing the SDG11 process in Bijar: Step1


Institutional and stakeholder mapping is the first step of SDG localization in Bijar to identify relevant local actors, and sets the stage that would support integrated action for SDG implementation.
This preliminary step serves to identify stakeholders and engage them in the process to develop a common vision, joint objectives, and expected results.



key stakeholders of Bijar and their role in furthering local SDG implementation are:


  • Local authorities including municipality, and Regeneration Committee of Bijar, and Cultural Heritage-Handicrafts- Tourism administration of Bijar are the primary drivers of SDG localization in Bijar;
  • National and regional governments including Bijar county government, Kordestan province government, and Urban Development and Revitalization Organization (UDRO) of the Ministry of Roads frame legislation and regulations that define sectoral policies and development priorities;
  • Non-governmental organizations and civil society groups including Hamdelan-e Garoos, Mehrafarin-e Garoos, Hafezan-e Bam-e Garoos, Lalehaye Nesar, Shadi Afarinan-e Garoos. These NGOs and CSOs can bring alternate development models to achieve social targets, provide sectoral knowledge, support bottom-up approaches to implementation and monitoring, act as watchdogs of government and private sector accountability, and in some cases, represent excluded communities, localities, and concerns( environment, climate change,…) in policy making and programmatic planning;
  • Businesses and industry including agriculture LEs, and carpet LEs and SMEs. These are numerous opportunities for collaboration between business and government in SDG implementation, for employment generation, social protection of labor, technological innovation, social entrepreneurship, corporate social responsibility, and philanthropic donations (SDSN,2015);
  • Universities Including Islamic Azad University of Bijar, Payam-e noor University of Bijar, Engineering and Fundamental Science Faculty of Kordestan University. Universities can provide independent technical assistance for SDG localization (SDSN,2015);




Why we involve stakeholders?

There are numerous benefits to involving different stakeholders at this stage:

  • Improve the quality of the decisions, by benefitting from stakeholders’ expertise at the very start
  • Help to identify controversial issues or difficulties before a decision is made
  • Bring together stakeholders with a number of different viewpoints and help different parties find common ground, reducing the risk of opposition in later phases
  • Better inform stakeholders about the objectives and the issues at hand
  • Lead to better acceptance of the decisions and measures that are taken
  • Increase the confidence of the public about decision-makers
  • Help more stakeholders commit to action, so that more ambitious climate protection goals can be agreed

Darband Darabad

Darband and Darabad Restoration Strategic Plan


“Darband and Darabad Restoration Strategic Plan” is part of a greater project of Tehran’s river-vallies restoration which is currently undertaken by Tehran Municipality for Five river-vallies in the city: Darabad, Darband, Darakeh, Farahzad and Vardavard. The current conditions of these two rivers which has gradually transferred from their natural setting into storm water, runoff and waste water concrete conveyors, along with physical considerations, legal and Economic pressures stemming from highly densified and developed parts of the capital, has turned the project into a quite challenging one. Main goals and considerations of the project are classified as below:


1. First; Planning for safety against storm water.

2. Second; Water health management, Basic flow quality improvement, Riparian ecosystem restoration and ground water recharge.

3. Third; River’s identity improvement.

Nahjolbalagheh Park

Nahjolbalaghe Park Development and Completion


Farahzad River Valley is a ten-kilometer long north-south natural axis that is located in the north west of Tehran. Three urban sequences are proposed to connect the abandoned areas of the river valley to the city:


1. The Urban Park (Between Niayesh Highway and Eyvanak Boulevard)

2. The Sport Park (Between Hakim Highway and Marzdaran Boulevard)

3. The Culture Park (Between Marzdaran Boulevard and Jalal-e- Ale Ahmad Highway)


The first sequence (the Urban Park) is under construction which is a 30-hectare land located between dense green natural fabric from north and the 1st phase of Nahjolbalaghe Park. In other words, this could be seen as a transition area from natural to urban spaces which is comprised of four development zones:


1. East Development

2. West Development (The Skate Park)

3. The Art Garden

4. The Rock-climbing Park
