International Conference on Urban Sustainability: Emerging Trends, Themes, Concepts & Practices (ICUS) 2018 Logo
The world is witnessing an irreversible trend of increasing urbanization, but failure to manage its impact is threatening human health, environmental quality, and urban productivity. Urban sustainability, therefore, is at the centre stage in policy discussions at the global, regional, or local level. However, priorities in a move towards sustainable development differ greatly amongst nations, regions, and cities due to the extent and impact of sustainability-related problems, their preparedness, and their place in the development continuum. At this juncture it is imperative to examine the interrelationship between assimilative and supportive capacities of environment and costs and benefits of alternative development interventions in the light of given socio-cultural, institutional, and political factors.

In this backdrop, the conference was an attempt to seek convergence of ideas on urban sustainability, explore models of urban development, and gain knowledge of appropriate tools and techniques for effective planning, governance, and management of cities. The International Conference on Urban Sustainability: Emerging Trends, Themes, Concepts & Practices was organized at Malaviya National Institute of Technology Jaipur from 16th to 18th March 2018.
