Course description

This course is concerned with the challenges facing development planning in the global South, focusing on understanding the main problems related to cities. It aims to enhance the student's understanding of the current debate on development planning and the relationship between theory and practice. In so doing, the course addresses the role of institutions, practitioners and communities in bringing about sustainable and positive change in the cities of the global South. The course will borrow from, and build upon, the experiences of development planning in the global South based on case studies discussing interventions to more effectively deal with a range of issues including poverty, inequality, urban growth, transport and environmental problems.
