Seminar description for transport planning (TP)
Part of the Seminar on Transport, Infrastructure and Human Settlement Planning

Lecturer for TP: Joachim Scheiner

The second part of the course will focus on transport planning. Transport planning is part of any regional planning activity due to its importance for economic and social development. Experiences and theories reveal the significant impact of transport projects to agricultural production, income generation, and poverty alleviation, as long as decisions are based on a sound analysis of the situation. Transport planning and provision in most rural areas of developing countries is, however, characterised by a number of significant problems. Methods and tools for analysis and planning will be introduced, examples from different countries will be given, and exercises will be prepared by the participants in order to identify strategies for transport interventions.

Seminar description for human settlement planning (HSP)

Part of the Seminar on Transport, Infrastructure and Human Settlement Planning

Lecturer for HSP: Shahadat Hossain

The third part of this seminar, human settlement planning will offer space for discussion on the practicalities and complexities of settlement development and upgrading in the cities of the developing countries. In order to understand the interplay between policy, programme, project implementation and market forces, it will explain the interaction between market, state, civil society including NGOs, and international players in the production of settlement structure and housing in those cities. It will seek to significantly increase understanding about land tenure, housing and housing financing they involve, so as to be better able to analyse problems of low-income settlers and the practicalities and potential of the actors to be taken in response to such programmes by government, their advisors and funders, NGOs, and community groups. It will explain how the provision and development of settlement relates to social justice in the city, focusing on how settlements and housing provisions differ along lines of race, class, gender, and other axes of oppression.
