Survey of European Programs: Education for Urbanization in the Developing Countries. An International Urbanization Survey Report to the Ford Foundation.
This report is intended as a contribution to the International Urbanization Survey, initiated by The Ford Foundation. The Survey is designed to review and assess experience in the complex problems posed by the rapid growth of urban centres throughout the developing countries. The terms of reference used here were broadly taken to be as follows: to provide an inventory of European institutions with research and training programmes concerned with urban and environmental problems in the developing countries. For purposes of this survey, the following activities were not included here: (1) private consultants, architects, planners, etc., (2) international agencies, even if based in Europe; (3) pure documentation services; (4) technical programmes on elements of the urban environment (e.g., public health, transport, police, etc.); (5) courses or centres not specifically devoted to the problems of developing countries (e.g., various university courses provide an educational resource for developing countries although they are not organized specifically to fill such a need). For related documents in this series, see UD 013 731-UD 013 744 for surveys of specific countries. For special studies analyzing urbanization in the Third World, see UD 013 745-746 and 013 748.] (Author/SB)
