Urban Perspectives: Climate Change, Migration, Planning and Financing

2017 New Generation of Ideas Report from Wilson Center. Recognizing the need to strengthen the ties between urban policymaking and new scholarly work on urban development, the Wilson Center’s Urban Sustainability Laboratory, USAID, the World Bank, IHC Global and Cities Alliance teamed together to cosponsor the annual “Reducing Urban Poverty” paper competition for advanced graduate students. The competition is designed to promote the early career development of young urban researchers, encouraging a new generation of urban scholars, practitioners and policymakers, and to disseminate their innovative ideas. This publication marks the seventh year of the “Reducing Urban Poverty” paper competition and includes a range of perspectives on urban challenges and policy solutions. The 2016 competition called for papers linked to one of the following subtopics: Cities and Climate Change; Arrival Cities: Responding to Migrants and Refugees; Innovation in Urban 2 Urban Perspectives: Climate Change, Migration, Planning and Financing Planning; and, Financing Sustainable Urban Development. To select the winning papers for this publication, a panel of urban experts representing each of the sponsoring institutions reviewed 157 abstract submissions, from which 27 student authors were invited to write a full-length paper. Of these, eight papers were selected to be included in this publication. The chapters in this volume critically examine urban policies and projects, offering original, solutions-oriented research and strategies.
