11th International Forum on Urbanism (IFoU) Congress 2018
10 -12 December 2018
Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain
Objective of the congress:
UIC Barcelona is hosting the 11th edition of the annual conference of the International Forum on Urbanism (IFoU), organised in cooperation with the Urban Resilience Research Net (URNet) and UN-Habitat.
Research on urban resilience is partly responsible for the urban resilience implementation gap. This is partly because of a lack of agreed and integrated multidisciplinary perspectives, frameworks and metrics to support design and governance for urban resilience. Because of this, the International Forum on Urbanism (IFoU), in partnership with UIC Barcelona, the Urban Resilience research Network (URNet) and the UN Habitat City Resilience profiling Program, will dedicate its 11th annual conference to help bridging this gap between research and practice, and moving towards more integrated perspectives on urban resilience implementation.
In order to reach a global audience involved within the debates, the annual conference has been framed within two interconnected international events: a first congress in Barcelona, taking place during the Barcelona Resilience Week (the week in which the city celebrate its experience in resilience with a range of public activities from 10 to 15 December 2018) and a second one a few months later, in Jakarta, Indonesia.
