Rawabi will be the first Palestinian city to be built in accordance with a Masterplan. The Masterplan provides direction for the way the new city will grow and flourish and how future land use decisions will contribute to the achievement of social, economic and environment goals.

The development of Rawabi provides the opportunity to learn from best practice and to build a city, which will become a model for future development in Palestine.
