    How can infrastructure be chosen, planned, designed, implemented, maintained, enhanced and used to improve human well-being in formal and informal urban areas?

    The sustained functioning of infrastructural systems has multiple positive effects on human health and wellbeing. Therefore, infrastructure is central to the UN Sustainable Development agenda, featuring in and contributing to most Sustainable Development Goals (Goals 1, 3, 5–14 among others).

    The INFRA+ webinar series aims to identify links between context-specific infrastructural challenges, approaches to their solution and universal mechanisms towards improved sustainability.
