Amidst the COVID-19 crisis, leaders have relied on data to drive decision making and the experience of others to model their reforms. The ongoing pandemic and reverberating second-order impacts highlight the importance of understanding a diverse set of reform pathways and indicators.
Urban regeneration can help cities address the rising demand for land by densifying existing urban cores, particularly pockets of underused or disinvested land. Higher density is associated with economic growth and social integration. More dense, transit-friendly cities also means lower carbon emissions and less pollution, and contributes to increased resilience. Urban Regeneration leverages the value created through the transformation from underused areas to higher use, helping to cover public costs associated with Urban Regeneration infrastructure investments.
