About the Webinar
The TOD Standard is a powerful tool to evaluate projects and neighborhoods, to align policies, regulations, and stakeholder expectation, and to give rise to urban development that is truly inclusive and walking, cycling and transit-oriented.
This webinar will review the newest version of the Standard, highlight its enhanced metrics for inclusivity, and present real cases.
About the Presenters
Luc Nadal | Technical Director, Urban Development
Luc has led ITDP’s global urban development program since its inception in 2005. The program’s primary objective is to support governments worldwide in the creation of vibrant, sustainable, equitable cities. Luc is the lead author of ITDP’s TOD Standard—a tool that supports good practice in transit-oriented development. The standard has had notable success in international policy: new development regulations in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the states of Jharkhand and Tamil Nadu, India reflect the standard’s objectives, and the Netherlands’ most populous province, South Holland, references to the standard for use in development planning and review.
A former practicing architect, Luc holds a doctorate (with distinction) and a master of philosophy in urban planning, both from Columbia University, as well as an architect diploma from École d’Architecture de Paris La Villette.
