Learn how communities in the Slum Dwellers International (SDI) network are working with cities and international climate and resilience experts to bring Know Your City (KYC) slum dweller-generated data into urban resilience planning processes.
Learn how SDI and Global Infrastructure Basel Foundation (GIB) are working to influence sustainable infrastructure investment in Durban and how SDI, 100 Resilient Cities (100RC) and Itad are working in Cape Town and Accra to mainstream KYC in resilience planning and implementation processes.
These collaborations are the result of awards by the Resilience Measurement, Evidence and Learning Community of Practice (CoP), which seeks to strengthen the evidence base for resilience investments.
The first of a two-part series will highlight:
• How SDI’s Know Your City program mobilizes slum dwellers to collect their own data, profile their settlements and create partnerships with cities around this data
• How SDI and GIB’s analysis has the potential to influence decisions and investments for large infrastructure investments, via GIB’s Standard for Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure (SuRe®) Smartscan
• How linking urban planning and investment with real-time, local data can help development and investment at local, national, and global levels, focusing on African cities in the 100RC network
Panel members include:
• Skye Dobson, Director of Learning, Monitoring and Evaluation with Slum Dwellers International (SDI)
• Alhassan Baba Fuseini, National Data Coordinator with the Ghana Federation of the Urban Poor (GHAFUP)
• Katharina Schneider-Roos, CEO with Global Infrastructure Basel (GIB)
