ESMAP Tool Helps Turkish City Make Economic Growth Sustainable

The city of Gaziantep in southeastern Turkey is one of the fastest growing urban areas in the world. An important trade link serving as Turkey’s gateway to the Middle East, the city has seen its population increase ten-fold to an estimated 1.35 million over the last 40 years.

The TRACE deployment in Gaziantep placed the city at the forefront of Turkey’s ambitious “greening” agenda and directly informed the creation of a Sustainable Cities investment program in the World Bank’s US$ 4.4 billion 2012-2015 Country Partnership Strategy with Turkey.
