This session will focus on current trends in Central and South America and the Caribbean in relation to key variables of this highly urbanized region. Current issues involve, among other themes, right to the city, accessibility, poverty, inequality, housing realities, and microfinancing both for business and housing. Speakers will present their insights from a diverse body of research and actual engagement in specific projects in the region.  Sustainability research and current policies will frame the conversation of the urban agenda. Discussion is also expected to address the variety of approaches on state interventions in the region: from strong state intervention to more market-driven policies. Labor markets and migration, both national and international, are also to inform the Latin America urban discussion.
