​Urban Challenges​​​

​​​​​​​With the Greater Beirut Area as our laboratory, MSFEA engineers, planners, and architects research ways to address cross-sectoral and trans-disciplinary problems related to urban growth in the Global South. We produce knowledge to improve livability, sustainability, and resilience in cities by focusing on sustainable transportation systems, affordable housing, property rights, post-war recovery, sound governance, and urban pollution​.​​

​See below for some of MSFEA's ongoing research in this thrust, and see other research areas here.​​
