A Safe City is a Just City

Improving developing cities’ traffic safety is a critical task for ensuring that these growing urban centers become safe, equitable places to live. A key part of achieving this safety? Sustainable urban design.

The event will convene key experts and explore ways that urban design can improve safety—and in turn, justice—in developing cities around the world.
