Philipp Rode to moderate Mobilize Santiago plenary

27 June 2017

LSE Cities’ Executive Director Philipp Rode will moderate “Governing Urban Accessibility Beyond Transport” at Mobilize Santiago, the annual sustainable transport summit of the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP). Thursday’s plenary – “Governing Urban Accessibility Beyond Transport” – will consider access as the basis of economic development in cities. Research shows that governing urban accessibility requires moving beyond conventional urban transport considerations to a greater recognition of land use, urban design, service levels and travel speeds, while ensuring greater coordination between municipal and metropolitan agencies.
