We have conducted an innovative research for Isfahan Municipality to assess possibilities of using a sustainable development approach in the structure of city government. The result showed that 5 out of 63 aspects of SD could be challenged in a society with Islamic values and principles:
- Tolerance, respect and participation of people with different cultures, different beliefs and backgrounds.
- Creating a sense of civic values, a sense of responsibility and pride.
- Creating social cohesion
- Living and working in a democratic society, equitable, diverse, responsive, supportive and vibrant
- Preparing a high degree of welfare for current and future generations.
In the project we explained which values may have inconsistency with the aspects. Also 4 scenarios were proposed to implement SD in the municipality.
