Shaping Resilient Solutions: Exploring practices and partnerships to finance and implement urban adaptation for all

9th October 2019 @ 09:00 14:00

This event, hosted by SDI, with input from Cordaid and Arcadis, we will take a deep dive into local level challenges and initiatives, such as the role of urban development professionals (private and public), organized urban poor communities, and NGOs. Speakers will share experiences with various tools and approaches on the ground through the presentation of case studies from each organization.

During this event, we will explore various approaches to climate change adaptation, resilience and mitigation work, seeking to understand how they are interlinked and how they impact issues of social justice, inclusivity, and sustainability so that we can work together to produce development that works for all.

Anchored by lead speakers such as Sheela Patel, this event will deepen and sharpen these discussions and explore concrete steps we can take to bring our aspirations into reality. We invite thought leaders, senior policy makers, active citizen groups, government officials, and business leaders to explore what it will take to produce new alliance partnerships that will make change happen in the 21st century.

After these initial presentations, we will break into small groups to make clear and concrete recommendations for strategies to jointly address these challenges.
