With two-thirds of the world’s population predicted to live in cities by 2050, how do we develop urban infrastructure to advance environmental sustainability, health and livability? In this talk, we’ll take a holistic look at all our urban infrastructure sectors, including the supply of energy, water, food, building materials, transportation, sanitation and waste management, and public spaces in cities. We’ll explore new ways to address the complexity of interactions of these infrastructure sectors with each other, and with people and the environment, to shape environmental sustainability, health and livability, using examples of innovative infrastructure design and policy solutions emerging in cities.
