Abstract

This chapter explains the manner of implementing FUPOL policy model and FUPOL platform in the process of creating the actual policies in the City of Zagreb. For that purpose, two pilot initiatives have been chosen, and based on them, the whole policy lifecycle has been covered. The background of these pilots is explained, as well as the challenges that the City of Zagreb has faced. In addition, the results of concrete actions and possible solutions are presented. All of them use a new integrated approach to policy design and implementation that consists of an advanced policy lifecycle and an IT-solution (FUPOL) with features supporting all phases of the proposed lifecycle.

Background

The City of Zagreb has implemented two pilots in the domain of Land Use & Improvement of Social Infrastructure (Jones, 2012), (Jones, 2013), (Topham, 2013). The first one consists of two tests, one regarding the policy setting in the field of social infrastructure, and the other one for gathering the opinions apropos the Centre for autism. The second pilot also consists of two tests, one for the policy setting in the field of social infrastructure as well, and the other one for gathering the opinions apropos the children’s playground in Remete. This chapter presents only the first pilot that has already started and provided some initial results.

First pilot initiative was launched in May 2013. The aim of the pilot initiative was through FUPOL approaches and platforms to include a greater number of citizens in the campaign aimed to define the city’s policy on the issue of improving the social infrastructure in Zagreb, and the construction of the Centre for Autism and accompanying sensory park. In this way accomplished are also the preconditions for the evaluation of the new FUPOL solutions.
