The specific characteristics of aid in urban contexts: an important area of study for Groupe URD
Both humanitarian and reconstruction aid in urban contexts involve specific methods, know-how and partnerships. Groupe URD has been working on these issues for a long time.
We recently took part in an event on urban resilience organised by the Partenariat français pour la ville et les territoires, and ALNAP’s Urban Response Simulation Workshop held on 5 & 6 November.
These issues were the focus of the seminar “Cities and crises”, co-organised with the French Development Agency. A detailed report of this seminar is now online.
