Event description

Description

This lecture is based on a new research report called Resource Urbanisms: Asia’s divergent city models of Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Singapore and Hong Kong by LSE Cities at the London School of Economics which was supported by the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences (KFAS) through the LSE Kuwait Programme.

This research investigates the common assumption that cities and urban development are directly affected by the availability and costs of natural resources, and that in turn, different forms of urban development result in substantial differences in resource efficiency. Resource Urbanisms looks land and energy resources and explores their relationships with city form, urban dwelling and mobility. It also analyses these relationships through a comparative case study approach which considers extreme and divergent city models in Asia.
