Event Description

Full Description:
Urbanisation is one of this century’s most transformative trends, with over half the world’s population now living in cities. This has significant implications for sustainability, with competing demands for agriculture, housing and infrastructure, energy and water. The urban poor face multi-faceted vulnerabilities at the urban Nexus of water, energy, and food. Leandro is part of a team working on a transnational three-city case study, a collaborative project between the University of Sao Paolo (looking at the city of Gaurulhos), the University of Sussex (looking at the city of Sofia, Bulgaria) and Wageningen University (looking at Kampala, Uganda). He will share some of the findings from Guarulhos.
