Monday, 8 April 2019 Add to Calendar 2019-04-08 14:30:00 2019-04-08 17:30:00 Asia/Kolkata CPR-CSH Panel Discussion on 'Spatial Analysis of City Regions: Perspectives from France and India' RSVP required. Please confirm participation to neeru.gohar@csh-delhi.com and carry valid photo ID The discussion will be livestreamed on CPR’s Facebook page, here. The city exists in space and in the context of its region, yet we rarely analyse the city spatially. Many crises – climate change, inequalities, old and new epidemics – are concentrated in urban areas and solutions need to be found there. Locating these issues and understanding their interconnections is the first step to begin to understand and address them. The use of geospatial data is one entry point to this understanding. This panel will present a variety of research in two Indian and two French research institutes using such data to highlight the variety of questions that can be studied using such tools.   The issues addressed will include open source tools and geo-datasets for studying urban changes, emerging epidemics and climate change in urban areas, the synthesis of socio-economic and ecological transformations in peri-urban spaces and spatial relationships between governance and inequality.
