Conference : "Post-crisis reconstruction : the future of cities in the South and the role of cities in the North”
29 September 2016, Paris

In partnership with the French Development Agency, Groupe URD co-organised the conference, "Post-crisis reconstruction : the future of cities in the South, the role of cities in the North” which took place in Paris on September 2016.

This event followed on from several months of work preparing the Habitat 3 conference which was due to take place in October 2016 in Quito (Equator). It provided an opportunity to present the results of our work and discuss our findings. It followed on from the “Cities and crises” conference organized by the same partners in April 2013, and aimed to help the French Development Agency establish recommendations for donors.

The results of the peer exchange between urban development experts from the Central African Republic and Haiti also fed into the discussions.

The conference looked at the following issues :

  • How can effective partnerships between humanitarian and development organisations be promoted ?
  • Can the emergence of a civil society body, between the population and the national institutions, help to re-establish development ?
  • Can the discontinuity caused by the crisis be used to any advantage in urban environments ?
  • Looking ahead.
