Talk with Edésio Fernandes on Urban Land Development

February 25th, 2013
5:00pm

Location
Greenleaf Conference Room, Jones Hall

Please join us for a lecture by Edésio Fernandes, one of the leading scholars of urban informality, on February 25th at 5:00pm in the Greenleaf Conference Room. Urban development rates have escalated globally, especially in developing countries. However, internationally, a growing number of people only have access to urban land and housing through informal processes that bypass the land, urban planning, environmental and building regulations in force. This talk will address the phenomenon of growing urban land informality, discussing its meanings, causes and implications, as well as the main attempts that have been made to confront the phenomenon.

Edésio Fernandes is a Brazilian lawyer and city planner based in London, where he is a member of DPU Associates. He is also on the teaching Faculty of the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy and he coordinates IRGLUS (International Research Group on Law and Urban Space), a partner of United Nations/HABITAT. His research and teaching interests include urban and environmental law, planning and policy; local government and city management; and constitutional law and human rights in developing countries. For the last two decades, he has focused on the field of urban land regularization in Latin America and other regions.
