Urban Planning and the Challenge of Slums

Urban planning is a key instrument for guiding urban development and creating prosperity in cities. However, traditional modes of planning have largely proved ineffective in dealing with the challenges of urbanization, e.g. slum formation, urban sprawl, and the impacts of climate change. Planning frameworks, including their tools, institutions and regulations, play a significant role in determining sustainable cities.

This E-Dialogue on Urban Planning will explore all these issues, and more. Urban planning is inextricably linked to urban governance, and therefore a wide range of issues and challenges related to urban governance which have a bearing on the form and shape of cities, will also be discussed. Views and experiences about laws, regulations, and institutions which work, and those which don’t, are welcome. New ideas and approaches on how urban growth can contribute to enhancing the prosperity of cities will be shared.
