2018 Theme: Public Policy for Sustainable Metropolitan Development

The 2018 APPAM International Conference in Mexico City, Mexico, will be held on July 19 – 20, 2018. Join us at the campus of the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM). The LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin and the Instituto Tecnólogico Autónomo de México (ITAM) are jointly organizing the 2018 conference. 

Submissions Now Open

 

Located in one of the world’s largest metropolitan areas, the 2018 conference comes some 18 months after the 2016 bi-decennial UN-Habitat III conference in Quito and the adoption of the “New Urban Agenda” (NUA). The NUA presents a paradigm shift based on the science of cities and lays out standards and principles for the planning, construction, development, management, and improvement of urban areas along its five main pillars of implementation: national urban policies, urban legislation and regulations, urban planning and design, local economy and municipal finance, and local implementation.   The NUA also incorporates the United Nations 2015 sustainable development agenda which sets goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all, embodied in 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs propose specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years and include: Poverty, Good Health and Wellbeing; Quality Education; Clean Water and Sanitation; Affordable and Clean Energy; Decent Work and Economic Growth; Sustainable Cities and Communities; Climate Action, etc. For further details on the New Urban Agenda and SDGs and targets, please visit the Habitat III and United Nations websites.  

Both the conference theme, and the venue of Mexico City offer an excellent opportunity for a wide range of session papers and posters presentations relating primarily to sustainability in cities, especially those related closely to the aforementioned NUA and the SDGs. Given the conference location in one of the world’s largest megacities we invite submissions with a metropolitan focus (albeit not exclusively so), with a “steer” towards larger cities, especially those with multi-jurisdictional governmental structures and governance challenges. Specifically, submissions are invited for sessions that focus upon, or intersect with tracks within the broad Policy Areas listed here.

APPAM invites researchers, analysts and policymakers to critically reflect on their experiences working on issues of public policy and urban development. Explore the core policy areas and categories; submissions will open on December 4, 2017.
