Urban Planning 239: Special Topics in Regional and International Development

Quarter: Winter 2017
Instructor: Randall Crane

This class has two main themes: Service delivery and governance reform in developing countries. The emphases are policy- and practitioner-oriented aspects of urban service gaps brought on by rapid urban growth and intergovernmental reforms associated with greater urban autonomy, with examples from several countries and sectors. The individual/group projects permit you to examine a specific sector in a particular place in more detail.
