Climate change and urban planning in the Caribbean: Planning for sustainability

Climate change and urban planning in the Caribbean: Planning for sustainability

This talk focuses on the challenges arising from a professional consultancy engagement between 2012 and 2016 in designing ‘sustainable growth city scenarios’ for the Caribbean cities of Nassau (The Bahamas) and Paramaribo (Suriname), in the context of the Emerging Sustainable Cities Program of the Inter-American Development Bank.

The talk outlines the conceptual framework underpinning the consultancy work (what is a sustainable city?), the approach utilized to guide the design process (how to ‘build’, ‘map’ or ‘represent’ the sustainable city), and findings along the process that could (arguably) steer development, through policy and governmental action, in a direction of ‘sustainability’.

Arturo Samper is a Colombian and Canadian architect and city planner with a degree from Uni-versity of Los Andes in Bogotá, and Master of Architecture and Master of City Planning at Penn University.
