Urban Infrastructure, Planning and Spatial Transformation

by admin irgsc

Urban infrastructure, Planning and Spatial transformation sustainability are empirically interlinked. Urban infrastructure connects the needs, activities, interactions, and interests of city dwellers.  Planning is related to making strategies that affect urban spatial transformation. 

In many countries, infrastructure development and planning often follow certain paradigm trajectories, many times top-down, with various combinations such as neo-liberals, which lead to spatial transformations in undesirable directions, presenting inequality and uncontrolled spatial development. These processes in turn create changes in society as well as social interactions that negate social and spatial changes as co-substantial changes (Million et al, 2021). Our research agenda deals with the dynamics of infrastructure development, planning and spatial transformation as well as social change that takes place at various scales; micro, meso and macro.
