World Urban Campaign (WUC) partner Commonwealth Association of Planners will be hosting an event at World Urban Forum 9 (WUF9) on February 10 from 9-11am in Room 405 at the WUF9 venue in Kuala Lampur. 

Presented by Ben Bolgar (Prince's Foundation for Building Community) and Nicolas Galarza (NYU), this Prince’s Foundation session will highlight a bare bones simple practical approach to dealing with rapid urbanization.
