I2UD Presents Results of Resiliency-building Research to 7th World Urban Forum

Programme Title: Lincoln Institute Panel discussion: “Addressing Urban Environmental Risk in Latin America”
Date: Thursday April 10
Time: 2pm to 4 pm.
Location: Yellow Pavilion, Room 8

The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy hosted a Networking Event at the 7th World Urban Forum in Medellin. The event presented the findings of Lincoln’s research fellows into approaches to dealing with environmental risk in Latin America, including I2UD’s recent work in Nicaragua and Colombia. Lincoln’s research focuses particularly on the ways in which climate change exacerbates the vulnerability of low-income urban dwellers living in precarious locations.

The report, entitled “Building Resilience for Informal Settlements in Latin America,” will be published later in 2014.
