The Urban Observatory is a “Specialized Center” that takes the form of a Specialized Technical Department established at the core of the organizational structure of the city administration. This Technical Department collects, analyzes data, statistics and information in the various areas of Urban Development, operates and processes them in line with the requirements of measurement, comparison, publication, preservation and retrieval of the areas of city development in order to work on improving the living conditions of the city Communities. This Technical unit transforms information into a set of indicators that help decision-makers responsible for Urban Development in setting policies and drawing plans that achieve the goals of development of the city and its Communities, whether Urban, Economic, Social or Environmental development, i.e. Global and Sustainable Urban development. The Urban Observatory is a good tool in the hands of decision makers, as it can, through the indicators it produces, determine the extent of improvement or deterioration in the city’s conditions on a regular basis, and compare, whether over time or between other cities undergoing the same development stage or with the same number of communities.

The birth of the city
Benghazi is located on the Mediterranean coast in the north-east of Libya, about 1023 km from the capital, Tripoli.
It is considered the Second largest city in Libya in terms of area, population, and importance. The city and the nearby areas have gone through several stages of history since its establishment in the fifth century BC. According to historical sources, Benghazi was founded as a Greek Settlement in the year 525 BC. It was known at the time as (Eosperides), and the city is the last link in a series of successive provinces to which the rule of Cyrene was subjected in various periods of time in its history, where the city of Shahat (Cyrina) The first cities that were the center of Government, followed by the city of Tolmitha to become the New center , before it moved again the center of Government during the sixth century AD from it to the city of Apollonia and from there to the city of Susa, then the Turks chose Benghazi to be the capital of the entire region of Cyrenaica after their complete control over the region.
For this reason, Benghazi has struggled over time and returned to life repeatedly, and its existence has been confirmed historically for a period of time that extends to about 2500 years of history, and thus is one of the oldest and longest-standing Libyan cities.
