The impact of land use and urban professionals on the development and management of cities is often seen as slow, conservative, and incremental, but there is often need for it to be rapid, dynamic, and far reaching. This duality is captured in the title of the 2013 Caribbean Urban Forum: (R)Evolution. This is a challenge to Caribbean urban and land use professionals to full their potential as advocates for change in the face of new forces, contexts, and needs.
