Inclusive economies in cities in Southeast Asia

CityNet encourages its member-cities in the ASEAN region to participate in the workshop entitled “Inclusive Economies in Cities in South East Asia” to be held on 10 -11 May 2016 at the Chatrium Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. This event is held by Oxfam GB in collaboration with CityNet, UCLG-ASPAC, and WIEGO, and under the auspices of the Asia Development Dialogue (http://asiadialogue.org/) platform, which aims to promote multi-sectoral discussion on key issues of urban governance in Asia. The platform is managed by Oxfam with support from the Rockefeller Foundation.

This workshop will highlight, explore and examine the multiple perspectives required for developing inclusive urban prosperity, with particular attention being paid to the challenges of the large informal sector of South East Asian Cities. The workshop aims to provide a space for concerted dialogue between stakeholders (City governments, CBOs, NGOs, Private Sector, National Government) and will attempt to develop commonly determined tools for bringing about Inclusive Local Economic Development in the region’s cities.

Furthermore, the key role of international frameworks, in particular ASEAN will be explored, the workshop acting as a timely opportunity for discussions and recommendations for “Habitat III” – the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development, which will take place in October 2016.

This event will be an opportunity to share your perspectives of the challenges and solutions of social and economic exclusion in Asia’s cities. We would be grateful if you could confirm the Expression of Interest by May 2, 2016 to CityNet Program Officer, Mr. Jaime Paulo Mora at programs2@citynet-ap.org

Don’t miss a chance to join what is promising to be a very interesting discussion on Inclusive Economies.
