TCLab Enters New Partnership With UN-Habitat
We are especially pleased to announce a partnership with UN-HABITAT, the UN’s flagship agency on urban and regional issues. The focus of our joint efforts will be technological innovation, employment, and the urban economy in multiple cities facing rapid urbanization and unplanned growth. Our goal is to rethink the urban economy in practice, relative to economic theory and current policy trends. We place critical emphasis on a cross-sector toolbox of innovative approaches to intractable urban problems. These may include technological investments, urban space and land-use, employment, job skills and training, and the environment. The TCLab-UNHABITAT partnership will “travel” across several cities, but will maintain a focus on regulatory questions of how most equitably to attend to economic dynamism.
