URBAN RESILIENCE MASTERCLASS SERIES: LOW-INCOME HOUSING
By 2030, around 80% of the Malaysian population will reside in urban areas. Most will likely live in vertical public housing, which has accommodated the rapid inflow of population into the cities in the past. While public housing projects have created dividends for its occupants, especially in the 90s, there is an urgent need to halt and reverse the decline of liveability in public housing, accelerated further during the pandemic.
Considering the complexity of issues surrounding public housing, CityNet and Think City introduce their online class series on low-income housing focusing on building resilience and sustainability.
Covering issues on verticality, management system, health and wellbeing, and engagement, the course spanning over two weeks will utilise case studies in low-income housing with live tutorials and discussions outlining efforts and challenges in improving liveability and strengthening the resilience of communities living in low-cost housing.
