As populations shift, cities around the world face two types of challenges: rapid urbanization and population shifts that decrease populations in urban areas. These are challenges of rapid land use changes that will affect future infrastructure and institutional needs, future investment, place stress on surrounding landscapes and may increase susceptibility to climate change. The management of rapid urbanization of a region requires a scientific understanding of the complex patterns and processes associated with land cover changes and urban growth. The synthesis of this information will help decision makers to properly manage the challenges posed by urban expansion.
We embrace our responsibility by raising the standard for sustainable management practices in both our internal actions and the delivery of services.
The services that we develop aim to increase urban sustainability through a cross-sectoral approach, also recognizing the interrelationships between urban and natural environments. Through this approach, we provide decision makers with comprehensive tools to improve the future development of urban areas considering a range of factors, from density and urban configuration to infrastructure and open space requirements.
