Cities in developing countries are growing at an unprecedented rate and scale. With rising incomes, cities will expand outward. Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) is one of the most promising means of reversing the trend of sprawl and placing cities in developing countries on a sustainable pathway.
A videoconference seminar on sharing good practices on Transit-Oriented Development will be held on June 30, 2015 from 11:30-13:30 (JST). Japan’s long history of TOD and Land Value Captures together with TOD cases from East Asia and South Asia accumulated by the World Bank Group will be presented.
This seminar is intended for WBG staff and policy makers and practitioners of national and local governments, particularly of urban development, transport, environment, and transit departments and housing authorities, private developers, and academics.

In recent years, the world has seen many animal infectious disease epidemics such as avian flu, H1N1, and BSE. Animal disease epidemics threaten not only animal lives, but also the environment, agriculture, the economy, food security, and human health and life. In April, 2010, Miyazaki prefecture experienced an outbreak of foot and mouth disease, but it was successfully contained in about 4 months. TDLC created a video introducing the lessons learned from responding to the epidemic in collaboration with the United Nations University International Institute for Global Health, Japan’s National Center for Neurology and Psychiatry and Rakuno Gakuen University with contributions by the World Organisation for Animal Health and the Miyazaki Prefectural Government.
