The Future of Asian & Pacific Cities

Last year, our project manager Adele Vosper worked with Jens Aerts, Giselle Sebag, Dr Gregor Mews, and Mitchell Cook on writing a discussion paper for the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) which was launched today: "Future of Asian and the Pacific Cities: Transformative Pathways Towards Sustainable Urban Development in the Post COVID-19 Era."

The discussion paper complements the framework, thematic pillars and pathways developed in the Future of Asia and the Pacific Cities report, adding the dimension of urban health and resilience from the lessons learned during the ongoing health crisis. The paper examines long-term health equity issues and the implications of the current COVID-19 pandemic on cities across the region.

Please feel free to circulate the paper within your networks and provide us with your feedback. The paper is available to download here:
