Case Study: inequality, Livelihood and Ecological Sustainability in S?o Paulo

This case study is worth 40% of the final grade in the university course. The Professor?s Instructions: You are required to develop a case study of the globalizing (and dual) city of S?o Paulo. The paper consists of three parts: 1). Introduction: Issues for the city to be developed should include the themes/concepts of Evans? livability (livelihood and ecological sustainability), globalization and urbaniztion. It is in your introduction that A STRONG THESIS MUST BE COMMUNICATED which will be proven throughout the paper 2). Examine the city in its larger system, looking at conditions of urban change relative to national and/or regional and/or global levels; 3). Go in depth at a more local level of scale to examine issues of urban change in one or more areas (a program, a space, a neighborhood, a community, a zone) within the city. For this section, it is advisable for you to utilize Keck?s article ?Water, Water, Everywhere, Nor Any Drop to Drink? and perhaps one or two case studies regarding favela upgrades included near the end of UN-Habitat (2010) A Tale of Two Cities S?o Paulo.

As such, it is expected that your paper will be reflective of such a level. From me: Please note that I will be sending the two articles mentioned in this assignment along with a few more references to be used. As well, please carefully cite all ideas and quotations in the paper. I have to turn this paper into Turnitin.com so cannot afford to have any plagiarism. The Professor also suggested the resource : Caldeira, T. P. R. (2000). City of Walls: Crime, Segregation, and Citizenship in S?o Paulo. Berkeley: University of California Press.
