The Security and Sustainability Forum announces the third session in the Urbanization series, “Growing Urban Infrastructure with a Shrinking Footprint” will take place on October 11. Highlighting infrastructure challenges due to current emissions-intensive and inequitable systems and the added pressure of a growing population, the session will cover a range of academic thought and development practices. Experts will offer a broad picture of urban infrastructure issues applicable to both ends of the development spectrum. From natural resource throughput implications to shifting thought to reduce the carbon footprint of transportation, the discussion will cover a range of policy challenges.
