Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Argues that large numbers of Urban and Regional Planners will be required in the Third World over the next several decades. Some of these planners will be First World Nationals; this will particularly be the case in Africa. Argues that the ideal situation would be to develop one or more Third World Planning Centers in Canada; however, given current public sector austerity, this is probably an unrealistic expectation. Therefore, several existing Planning Schools in Canada should improve their delivery of Third World Planning Education through incremental change.-Author
