iSyudad 2021: Adaptive capacities of urban poor communities during the COVID-19 pandemic and other disasters
Already conflicted by existing pressures to secure adequate housing amid frequent disasters, the urban poor sector has been pressed even more to rise above the health and socio-economic impacts brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. These overlapping challenges are discussed in iSyudad 2021 through case studies that demonstrate the many forms of collective, context-specific solutions local communities are ingeniously devising in an attempt to adapt to the so-called “new and better normal.”
Outcomes Report: Tahanan Secure Tenure Summit 2019
Land is key. And with rapid urbanization, land has become more and more scarce. The urban poor is at risk of being displaced - away from their homes, from their livelihood, and from their families. With an eye to this problem, Tahanan: Secure Tenure Summit 2019 was held aiming to influence policies on land and housing to secure tenure for all.
This Outcomes Report synthesizes the proceedings of Tahanan Summit that convened national key shelter agencies, local and international development organizations, civil society and advocates to talk about pressing issues on tenure insecurity, especially in urban areas.
