PA 5880
China is home to the world’s largest urban population. How Chinese cities can satisfy the mobility and accessibility needs of a growing urban population is a critical question that affects every aspect of urban planning, from affordable housing provision to parking management. The Humphrey School will offer an intensive 2-week study abroad course in summer 2017 focusing on urban planning practices and emerging mobility and accessibility issues in the fast growing and wealthy regions of the Yangtze River and Pearl River delta regions. These two regions are at the center of Chinese economic development, surpassing other areas in China in terms of economic growth, productivity, and per capita income. Lectures and field experiences in the two regions will provides students unique opportunities to explore urban growth patterns, housing and infrastructure challenges, and state-of-the-art transportation planning practices in two of the most densely populated regions on earth.
