Preparations for UN Habitat World Urban Forum 5

Alan Gilbert in Bogotá to discuss Latin American contribution

Preparations for UN Habitat World Urban Forum 5

In late January Professor Alan Gilbert attended a UN-Habitat meeting in Bogotá to discuss the Latin American contribution to the World Urban Forum 5 meeting, taking place in Rio de Janeiro in March. He is contributing one of five chapters to the volume on cities in Latin America. The visit also provided the opportunity to interview members of the housing and transport mafia in Colombia. A few days later he was at an Austrian-Japanese funded conference in Graz, Austria, on globalisation partly organised by a UCL alumnus, Noriko Hataya.
