Baku comes late to urban planning

Baku (World Bank video capture)

A plan to improve the quality of life in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, is being supported by the World Bank.

The city has grown quickly following an oil boom in the country, and now efforts are being made to bring some order to that development.

The Bank is helping the city to develop a detailed land management plan which will provide more public places such as parks and improve road safety for the 3. 5 million inhabitants.
