The Centro Interdisciplinario de Estudios Sobre el Desarrollo (CIDER) at Los Andes University in Bogota, Colombia and the Observatory on Latin America at The New School invite to the book presentation and discussion.

This book has been produced by the Global Urban Futures Project, supported by the Ford Foundation, and the Observatory on Latin America (OLA) at the Milano School of International Affairs, Management and Urban Policy of The New School, New York. Its purpose is to evaluate the progress made by six major Latin American countries, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Mexico, as they face the challenges of accelerated urban growth in the last two decades. The critical evaluation of progress in each country was carried out by distinguished professionals: Eduardo Reese, Andrea Catenazzi, Fernando Carrión, Edesio Fernandes, Alfredo Rodríguez, Paula Rodríguez, Jorge Enrique Torres, Alexandra Velasco and Alicia Ziccardi.
