Envisioning the future in Pakistan

Posted on February 19, 2021

IID panellist, Nausheen H Anwar, and the team at Karachi Urban Lab, recently published a short video report looking at the impact of urbanization in Thar, in the Sindh region of Pakistan.

“Faced with a rapidly shifting landscape spurred by an influx of concrete and capital, residents of these towns – educators, economists, social activists, and merchants – grapple with their hopes and anxieties about the future, and try to envision what their place within this emerging metropolis might be.”

Nausheen H Anwar is the Director of Karachi Urban Lab and Professor City & Regional planning, School of Economics & Social Sciences, IBA, Karachi, Pakistan. She will take part in the Questioning Identity and the past session at IID on 24 March.
