International Conference Megacities: Risk, Vulnerability and Sustainable development



The conference invites interdisciplinary contributions of worldwide regions from all fields of urban research such as: land use, social polarization, security, energy, water and sanitation, waste, mobility and transportation, air quality, health, food supply, economic productivity, climate, ecology. Proposed work is expected to examine these fields by means of modeling, monitoring, quantitative and qualitative social/political science research and sce-nario techniques. Interdisciplinary contributions are expected to present re-search that connects to any of the three main themes Risk, Vulnerability and Sustainable development.
