International Development Planning
The International Planning Specialization prepares planners to work with governments, community based NGOs and international development agencies that work on subnational development in developing countries.
The major goals of this specialization are to:
- Give the background needed to work in the particular contexts of developing countries and to deal with the special challenges they face.
- Teach students about cities in the developing world, the planning systems and processes that they use, and the skills that are particularly required for planning in less developed contexts.
