Units examine the institutional and legal framework for planning, and address the main policy challenges involved in planning sustainable communities. Issues covered include transport and land use, housing and infrastructure, community economic and cultural development, and social equity. Emphasis is placed on the acquisition of important planning competencies, and recognition is also given to the need for broad training in public policy, ethics, and economics as a basis for decision making. This course is global in scope with a focus on the burgeoning cities of Asia.
