International Conference on Sustainable Urbanization

Event:

2nd International Conference on Sustainable Urbanization (ICSU 2015)

Date:

7-9, January 2015

Aim of the Conference:

Massive urbanization programmes are under way in many parts of the world, often in regions where the available land and resources are limited relative to the size of the population (e.g. the Chinese mainland). While urbanization is a natural consequence of economic development and industrialization, it does lead to many challenges. Such challenges include the provision of effective urban infrastructures (e.g. transport systems), adequate housing, sufficient energy and water supplies, a clean environment, and caring community support systems in a sustainable manner. These challenges are amplified by the severe problems already faced by the world, including climate changes and limited supplies of natural resources. This conference series aims to provide an international forum for the international scientific/engineering community to examine these challenges and to find effective solutions to ensure a sustainable process of urbanization and sustainable operation and management of urbanized areas.
