The COVID-19 pandemic has brought urgency to the need to understand better the dynamics of urban density and examine how cities can overcome the downsides of density to create productive and livable cities through active policy decisions. This is particularly the case in developing countries that are undergoing rapid urbanisation with limited resources.
This online event brings together expertise from urban economics and urban planning with hard-won knowledge of urban practitioners and policymakers to discuss the relationship between urban density and infectious diseases. The panel provides insights into challenges policymakers face while managing urban density in developing cities, especially using spatial and strategic planning.
This webinar is hosted in partnership with the New York University's Marron Institute.
