19 February – Sustainable and resilient urban futures


With more than half of the world’s population living in urban areas, and urban areas contributing to about 75 % of resource use and GHG emissions, sustainable urban development is a must if global sustainability targets are to be met. In relation to present and future climate change adaptation, sustainable urban development has also had to consider the resilience of infrastructures and other systems of provision of basic and advances services. With these two challenges as points of departure, this lecture will provide some food for thought and discussion on the concept of a resilient and sustainable city could (or should!) be understood and what implications this could have for society at large.
