LSE Cities to host research seminar on 'Resource Urbanisms between abundance and constraints'



14 March 2021

This upcoming research seminar on 18 March at 1pm GMT, will discuss different perspectives linked to 'Resource Urbanisms' - an exploration of how natural resource conditions affect urban development and in turn determine the resource efficiency of cities. For a more fundamental exchange on resource urbanisms, the seminar brings together scholars from diverse disciplines including critical geography, economics, urban and transport planning, political and environmental science.

The point of departure for this exchange is a recent article by researchers at LSE Cities and the European Institute for Energy Research, which advances a qualitative and quantitative exploration of “Cities between Resource Abundance and Constraints: The Natural Resource Equation of Asia’s Diverging, Higher-Income City Models”.
