As part of a comparative ESRC research project, Governing the Future City, a comparative analysis of governance innovations in large scale urban developments in Shanghai, London, and Johannesburg, this public event brings together lead practitioners from the three contexts to learn from and reflect on different approaches to large scale urban development projects.
We are delighted to welcome as plenary speakers senior executive planners involved in the three case studies:
The role of the OPDC in delivering London's strategic plans: Opportunities and challenges
Metropolitan spatial planning and governance in Shanghai: Satellite cities and urban growth
Post-apartheid spatial transformation in Johannesburg: the place of large scale interventions/the Corridor Project.
Chair: Professor Jennifer Robinson (University College London)
Discussion: Professor Phil Harrison (University of the Witwatersrand), Professor Fulong Wu (University College London).
