urban assessment

The SBE Urban Challenge at WSBE17

Parallel sessions at WSBE17 in Hong Kong will include two 90-minute workshops focused on the performance assessment of small urban areas. The sessions are sponsored by iiSBE and will take place on 6 June (Session 56) and Session 98 (7 June).

The performance assessment of small urban areas is complex, since it raises questions of scale (how large is a small urban area?), suitable key performance indicators, appropriate reference performance benchmarks (similar areas or historical values or...?).

Research and professional teams from several countries will present, analyze and discuss their own approaches to small-area urban performance assessment in the session, supported by case studies where possible.
