British Red Cross, Nepal Red Cross and Durham University have organised The Urban Learning Forum 'Informing future urban resilience interventions in Nepal'

(21 November 2017)

The event will begin at 13:30 on 22 November 2017.

In this urban learning event, researchers and programmes working with municipalities and urban citizens will share impressions and learnings based on the emerging urban landscape of Nepal (a draft agenda is attached). The recent changes in Nepal have led to an increasingly urban nation with municipalities almost reaching 300. This is creating many questions amongst stakeholders on how best to support the municipalities and engage with urban citizens. We appreciate that not all learnings from organisations will be able to captured in this discussion, but if there is interest from others, would be keen to discuss regular forums for sharing.
