Spatial Planning, Infrastructure, Mobility and Housing
Rapid Urbanization has created a spatial planning challenge. In many cities areas that 10 years ago were peri-urban and rural have today been transformed into urban areas. Areas that were never planned as urban areas have been urbanized without a physical development plan.
Slums have become a major concern in the area consisting of series of survival strategies by the displaced rural poor. The increase in slums has compounded the public health and sanitation challenge in the cities. The poor garbage management practices and increased poor sanitation facilities have increased prevalence of many preventable diseases. Ensuring sustainable access to basic sanitation, efficient drainage systems and waste management practices is at the center of transforming the cities in the region into livable cities.
Rapid urbanization has increased the demand for clean domestic energy. The forum will focus on the best practices and appropriate technologies for clean energy that will support the regional low carbon development pathway.
