Speaker information

Dr Priti Parikh (UCL Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering)

How can we make our cities slum free? Dr Priti Parikh will discuss innovative approaches where engineering solutions are used to improve the living conditions of slums dwellers and have resulted in them being integrated into the city fabric. This talk will also explore socio-economic issues such as gender, land tenure, public partnership models and the business case for slum upgrading.
