The NYU Stern Urbanization Project is pleased to be part of the World Urban Forum in Medellín, April 5 - 11. Feel free to stop by our booth and learn more about the work of our Urban Expansion initiative from Alejandra Rangel-Smith, Patrick Lamson-Hall, and Nicolás Galarza. They will be joined by Jaime Vasconez, the lead of the Urban Expansion initiative in Latin America, as well as several of our partners from Ethiopia, Colombia, and India. The booth will feature short films about our work in Ethiopia and Colombia, as well as visualizations of urban expansion in 30 cities.
The flyer below (pdf here) describes our events, please feel free to join us. We'll be presenting on the progress of our work with municipalities in Ethiopia and Colombia, launching the Spanish-language edition of Solly Angel's book, Planet of Cities, and describing a new joint initiative with UN-Habitat and the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy.
