What We Do

ACTIVITY

To strengthen the institutional and technical capabilities of our member cities as well as associate members in their innovative solutions to urban challenges through capacity building programme is one of CityNet’s core mandates. It provides opportunities to CityNet members to nurture an enduring network of urban actors to create sustainable and resilient cities, and better respond to the changing landscape. We engage city leaders and urban stakeholders through localised and customised capacity building activities.

CLUSTER

The Cluster Approach

CITYNET members choose to join one of a number of clusters, or thematic program areas. Program activities are envisioned, designed and implemented with these member-driven clusters in mind. This gives CITYNET activities a sharp focus on members’ needs. Gradually, the planning, initiation and implementation of the activities for each cluster will be handed over to committees formed from among members of that cluster.

📣UNITAR CIFAL Jeju is holding a #VirtualWorkshop series on #SocialProtection, with a spotlight on #InformalWorkers. The event will take place on three sessions from March 18-25, at 3 PM KST.

While fighting the spread of #COVID19, countering measures like lockdowns and social distancing have affected informal workers disproportionately, who suffered from a higher risk of falling into extreme #poverty, as their economic activities were severely disrupted by those measures.

Informal workers usually work in poor occupational safety and health surroundings with poor access to social protection services. They are easily exposed to the risk of illness and injury. Even before the pandemic, access to healthcare was almost out of reach for these workers because the cost of such services was far too high for their earning.

This virtual event will discuss various approaches to social protection with a focus on informal workers in the pandemic situation, and explore how social protection can be applied in different contexts. Participants will be given an opportunity to share their own case studies and get engaged in designing #ActionPlans for better implementation of social protection strategies in line with their own national and local context.
