Urbanization, Growth, and Development

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 Urbanization, Growth, and Development included presentations by Douglas Gollin (University of Oxford), Martina Kirchberger (Trinity College Dublin), and Prakash Loungani (IMF).
