URB-UY 3354 Urban Impact Assessment

4 Credits
Impact assessment is an international, interdisciplinary field of knowledge and practice for anticipating the conditions of change and managing their consequences in order to enhance everyone’s quality of life. Two phrases can describe its essence: “comprehensive and integrated” and “proactive and creative.” Urban impact assessment applies that knowledge at the urban scale, ranging from local to global. Coupled with the recent innovation of “sustainability assessment,” it aims to advance the proposition of urban sustainability. This course also explores the dimensions and proportions of that prospect by applying urban impact assessment methodology to a variety of cases at hand.

Prerequisite(s): URB-UY 2034  or URB-UY 2024/W .
Note: Satisfies a humanities and social sciences elective.
