Many cities in the South are expanding rapidly, tripling the built-up area for every doubling of the population, and this is beginning to pose formidable accessibility problems for most inhabitants. These cities are at a moment of possible bifurcation of their future, notably between a model of uniform sprawl with very little density, or different and much more sustainable forms with a densification that could be structured by public transport networks.
This session will present how public policies can help cities in the South to shift from one model to the other.
