The Spatial Organization of Cities: Transport

Getting the spatial organization of cities right can mean better jobs, less pollution, and more efficient public services. On September 7, 2018, the 5th Urbanization and Poverty Reduction Research Conference brought together academics and development practitioners to present and discuss the most pressing questions related to the spatial organization of cities and economic growth. This session on transport included presentations by Matthew Kahn (University of Southern California - Dornsife), Julia Bird (University of Oxford), and Mathilde Lebrand (World Bank).
