Summary

The event presents research publications on how formal infrastructure and energy planning and development have been contributing to widening gaps in the city. Informal settlements remain left behind regarding sufficient provision of infrastructure and access to energy, suffering not only economic poverty but also in terms of services and energy. This event showcases different perspectives on how planners and various stakeholders take initiatives in coping with service and energy poverty in informal settlements, by looking at different aspects of basic infrastructure and transportation. The publications offer valuable insights on how different adaptive and innovative arrangements have been developed over time to provide such services for marginal groups in the city.

Objectives

a. To enrich global discussion on how different planning and development approaches have been practiced, modified, and adapted to local contexts by residents in informal settlements to cope with service and energy poverty. b. To showcase lessons learned on how self-organized arrangements and bottom-up initiatives have managed to meet the needs of residents in informal settlements. c. To add value on current planning and design practice in cities of the Global South in promoting inclusive and sustainable built environment.
