Sustainable Rotterdam

The city is re-inventing itself

Plenty of Shortage

Friday, April 28, 2006

A series of lectures is organized by Studium Generale at Delft University of Technology on the subject of resources' shortage. From the variety of attractive subjects programmed, it called our attention the one entitled Urban Poverty & Planning by architect and urban planner Claudio Acioly.

"The task of an urban planner in a country like The Netherlands appears to be difficult but the problems confronting urban planners in cities of the Developing World often place urban planners in a central role for the resolution of critical problems affecting the urban population. [ ] Rapid urbanisation and high population growth coupled with increasing demand for housing and urban services and the emerge of megacities are just some of the elements challenging urban planners' capacity to respond adequately and positively to the problems derived from this phenomenon' . Claudio Acioly will address these issues within an international perspective showing different cities in the world with their respective approaches in housing policies and slum upgrading strategies"
