D4D Kingston Propositive Analysis
  Kingston (Jamaica) Metropolitan Strategy Development Plan
  Kingston is a 1.7 million person regional metropolis, constituting 60% of the country’s population. The linear location of settlements has not yet merged into a continuous urban structure. The historical rail track recently began being reused for commuter service. This has to be coordinated with a metropolitan policy to address housing needs, social facilities provision and economic activity locations in a general framework of urban centralities, environmental protection and long term sustainability.
