APPAM 2018 International Conference: Public Policy for Sustainable Metropolitan Development
July 19 - 20, 2018 | Mexico City, Mexico
The 2018 APPAM International Conference in Mexico City, Mexico, will be held on July 19 – 20, 2018. Join us at the campus of the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM). The LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin and the Instituto Tecnólogico Autónomo de México (ITAM) are jointly organizing the 2018 conference.
Located in one of the world’s largest metropolitan areas, the 2018 conference comes some 18 months after the 2016 bi-decennial UN-Habitat III conference in Quito and the adoption of the “New Urban Agenda” (NUA). The NUA presents a paradigm shift based on the science of cities and lays out standards and principles for the planning, construction, development, management, and improvement of urban areas along its five main pillars of implementation: national urban policies, urban legislation and regulations, urban planning and design, local economy and municipal finance, and local implementation.
This conference will host nearly 60 sessions and three plenaries built around the seven primary policy areas. Attendees will also enjoy two receptions and unprogrammed lunch times for optimal networking opportunities. Join researchers from around the world as they share unique perspectives on sustainability and development.
When accessing paper abstracts, sometimes the abstracts are presented as Word documents and sometimes they are presented as simple text. It depends on how the information was submitted by the organizer.
