EVENT: Learning from CDKN’s city experience: Resilient Cities webinars

CDKN presents a webinar to share lessons learned from the planning experiences of building the resilience of cities in Ghana and Mozambique. A second webinar will examine building resilience to heat-related health risks in Ahmedabad, India. The webinars will take place on 23 January and 3 February respectively.

Participatory adaptation planning: Examples from African cities

23 January 2015, 15:30 – 16:30 Central Europe Time (GMT+1)  

This webinar will introduce two CDKN-funded projects: “Building coastal resilience” implemented in Ghana and “Public Private People Partnerships for Climate Compatible Development (4PCCD)” implemented in Mozambique. These two projects offer concrete examples of how to establish successful participatory planning processes and build partnerships among government, academia, the private sector and local communities. The webinar will share lessons learned from the planning experience of the two projects and suggest how these learnings can be extrapolated and what they can offer to development planners and practitioners elsewhere.

Also make a mark in your calendars for the subsequent webinar on 3 February which will feature Dr. Tejas and Anjali Jaiswal who will share their experiences on the Heat Action Plan in Ahmedabad:

Building resilience to heat-related health risks: The example of Ahmedabad, India

3 February 2015, 16:00 -17:00 Central Europe Time (GMT+1)   (*exact time tbc)

This webinar will focus on heatwaves and their effect on public health, by introducing the pioneering strategy of Ahmedabad to build resilience against such risks. Ahmedabad successfully implemented its pilot Heat Action Plan – the first of its kind in South Asia – and, based on this success, plans to scale out and scale up to other cities across India. Best practices for planning resilience and building public awareness, as well as for adoption of similar measures in other urban contexts will be in highlight during this webinar.

All webinars are free of charge.
