Développement urbain durable et quartiers informels à Damas : évolution des paradigmes et contradictions des réformes.

Abstract : In a context of major change in the guidelines for social and economic development of Syria over the past ten years, the rapid transformation of urban planning and housing policies in Damascus is more and more frequently accompanied by the reference of sustainable urban development. This notion helps to reorient urban planning choices and urban public policies, at least in their programmatic texts. What this notion covers in Damascus still remains to be defined. The programmatic texts that refer to this notion include various meanings of the term. Moreover, the difficulty or lack of implementation of the objectives of sustainable urban development set for housing and informal settlements shows the current limits of the application of this concept as a repository of urban policy. The reference to sustainable urban development in Damascus today still seems to act more as a space for transformation of representations in urban planning and housing than as the driving force for achievements.
