Introduction

Pedro Ortiz is an experienced planner and manager of metropolitan issues. The explosive growth is a challenge many metropolises around the world have to face on interrelated issues as Transport, Housing, Development Governance, Environment, Social, Economic, Infrastructures, etc. Many are the problems Metropolises are facing and little knowledge is around to handle these problems. It is a new phenomenon: it requires new knowledge, new approaches and new management procedures. Pedro Ortiz is one of the very few professionals around the world with extensive experience in this issue.

What You Can Expect

Pedro Ortiz approaches metropolitan issues in a integrated way. He has recently published with McGraw Hill 'The Art of Shaping the Metropolis' which is changing the approach to Metropolitan Management and Planning many cities are taking around the world.

He was in charge of the Metropolitan Plan of Madrid 1996 and had to integrate Environment, Transport, Economic activities, Social facilities and Housing, under the scope of Governance. He knows about how all these issues work together and how they have to interact to result in positive development in equilibrium for the metropolis.
