One of the most pressing issues affecting world population is the changing climate which has brought about detrimental impacts in water availability, agricultural production, pests and diseases as well as has created natural disasters in many parts of the world. Ironically, the changing climate is a product of modern civilization supported by capitalism. Although many nations have realized urgency of the situations, significant global actions to avoid environmental catastrophes with complex economic and social consequences have not been materialized yet.

When many nations are still navigating themselves in the alarming environmental situation, capitalist world has been shaken by unexpected economic crisis originated from the US. Given the interconnected world economy, the crisis has bitten many parts of the capitalist world. Despite financial and economic stimulation implemented in many countries, recovery will unlikely to occur soon. Shrinking growth will reduce living standards. For developing countries, it might deepen poverty.

These crises have called for a greater attention of policy makers, scholars and concerned communities. Furthermore, they require immediate and effective collaborative actions internationally and locally. Long term perspectives and short term solutions should be tailored and then implemented effectively. Although alternative solutions seem to be understood, effective collaborative global actions remain uncertain given significant conflicting interest among nations. This situation has endangered sustainable development, dimmed the prospect of poverty alleviation. It will affect development at the national, regional and local levels. Consequently, it has given rise to questions need to be addressed:

  • What is the prospect of our global environment? Do we need to redefine sustainable development? Do we have alternatives for better environment? How can planning contribute to realization of the alternatives?
  • How can planning contribute to recovery from and adjustment to the current economic crisis as well as avoid unintended consequences of capitalist development in the future?
  • What are strategic planning agendas at the national, regional and local level for adjusting to the current global crises? How can the agendas be institutionalized to assure their realization? what lesson can be distilled from the current crises for planning education and research in developed and less developed countries?

This International Conference on Urban, Regional Planning is seek to know the answer of the question by providing forum for the presentation of new advances and research results in the fields of theoritical, experimental, and applied Urban, Regional Planning.
