ICCPP e-Conference 2024
Life in cities has become more inconvenient than ever before, and this is bound to continue to happen due to urban population increases, economic crisis, energy demand, social inequality, health and safety concerns, environmental degradation, and climate change. Livability challenges derived from the aspects above have become worse due to the economic status of the post-pandemic era in each region of the world in different ways.
This conference proposes to examine the multi-faceted nature of developing resilient cities that enable conditions for convenient urban life: new approaches and future directions. It calls upon the academics and practitioners of urban studies to share their understanding of various approaches and mechanisms, both currently implemented and future potentials, in different contexts. We call upon all to share their experiences and enrich the current knowledge of achieving environmentally, socially, and economically resistant city building and its management based on urban resilience.
