Summary Emerging trends in development practice place new demands on planning, engineering and building design. Changes in global political and economic systems, rapid demographic changes, protracted ethnic conflict, political and economic reforms all compound already strained national development agendas. Added to these complex issues are the current commitments to the environment, gender, appropriate technology and human well-being.How should education respond? Are today's approaches to research andteaching appropriate to the realities in the field? How best can students be equipped, technically, methodologically, and intellectually? Why study in the "developed" countries at all? This interdisciplinary selection of 12 essays explores topics central to the education of development professionals; in particular planners, urban designers, engineers, and architects.
