Summary of event
The third in a series of biennial conferences, ICCCASU III follows ICCASU I, held in Ottawa, Canada in 2015, and ICCCASU II, held in Yaoundé, Cameroon in 2017.
ICCCASU III will examine current urban development models in African countries, Canada and China in order to identify how best to address fragility, reduce vulnerability and to promote efficiency, prosperity and smart urban development across a range of geographic, historical, political and economic contexts. The conference will also examine ways in which local and global issues place limits on sustainable urban development, and it will identify mechanisms that could or ought to be put in place to improve the local and global governance of urban spaces.
The organizing committee of the ICCCASU hereby calls for contributions in the form of individual scientific or policy papers, to be presented in either English or Chinese (in special instances we will also accept papers in French).
