webinar theme:

Many cities and regions world-wide experience enormous rates of growth and transformation. In this context the promotion of an equitable access to public goods is widely considered a key factor to ensure equitable development and to leave no one behind.

In this webinar scholars, activists and development professionals representing three research networks from three continents will share and reflect on how research and policy making can collaborate to bertter promote equitable urban development: How can research be more meaningful and effective for society and how can it have more impact on policy?

The initiative is supported by Cities Alliance’s Joint Work Program (JWP) on Equitable Economic Growth through the project Equity, Services and Economic Development in Cities of the Global South. This webinar is a follow-up to the Networking Event 47 at the World Urban Forum 10 in Abu Dhabi.

Peter Gotsch (N-AERUS): Towards a policy review on the role of public services for equitable economic growth

Taibat Lawanson (AURI): Research-Policy Engagements on the Lagos Resilience Journey

Additionally, we are pleased to welcome researchers and practitioners from the networks who were present at the WUF, including Edmundo Werna (N-AERUS, ILO) and Gilbert Siame (AURI, University of Zambia).

 

webinar series:

This webinar is one of a five-part series to evaluate, contextualize and operationalize existing research by Cities Alliance on equitable economic growth in cities of the Global South. Three research networks, working in Europe (N-AERUS), Africa (AURI) and LAC (REDEUS_LAC), collaborate to identify common problems cities face in pursuing social equity and economic growth, to share tested strategies for integrating policy making and research, and to disseminate these strategies to broader urban contexts. By targeting a global audience, we can share experience both within and beyond the regional focus of each webinar.
