Join us for the launch of Knowledge Products generated through
the Revitalising Informal Settlements and their Environments
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.
Join us to learn more about the rationale for this approach and how it can
complement conventional grey infrastructure approaches. Learn about the
key principles of community co-design and the technical components of
a WSC approach, and 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.
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.
