RISE Knowledge Product Launch: Water-Sensitive Informal Settlement Upgrading
Download the three knowledge products at bit.ly/2PiHs1j.
This event served as the launch of 3 knowledge products generated through the Revitalising Informal Settlements and their Environments (RISE) program. Presenters during the event discussed the rationale for a water-sensitive cities (WSC) approach and how it can complement conventional grey infrastructure approaches, as well as the key principles of community co-design and the technical components of a WSC approach. Speakers also highlighted how this can come together with the ambition to deliver on the SDGs in an integrated and transformational way and ensure no one is left behind.
The RISE program utilizes a water-sensitive cities (WSC) approach, including nature-based solutions, to deliver urban services, improve city functioning and livability, strengthen ecosystem servicing, and transform urban health and well-being. Working closely with city governments, communities and a research consortium led by Monash University, the Knowledge and Technical Assistance (KSTA) has been financed through ADB’s Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund (UCCRTF) for Makassar, Indonesia, and through the Urban Environmental Infrastructure Fund (UEIF) for Suva, Fiji.`
