International Team-up with CityNet National Chapter India Kicked Off to a Good Start

As reported by Housing and Urban Development Corporation Limited – Human Settlement Management Institute (HUDCO-HSMI), in its recently concluded international training programme on ‘Climate Change and Cities-Way Forward for Adaptation, Mitigation, and Resilience’ on October 21-25, 2010, CityNet National Chapter India’s first international partnership with CityNet Secretariat is a success.

The CityNet Secretariat contributed to the training by screening participants and supporting five local experts from its city members – Calapan (Philippines), Dhaka North (Bangladesh), HELP-O (Sri Lanka),  Hetauda (Nepal), Seberang Perai (Malaysia) – to come to Delhi for the five-day training programme. During the inauguration ceremony, HUDCO Director of Corporate Planning underscored the importance of the training’s theme as cities are both the problem and solution on carbon emissions. The program featured classroom presentations, brainstorming sessions and group activities from HUDCO’s institutional partner experts. Local visits to some of Delhi’s best practices like the Waste to Wonder Park and Teri Campus enabled participants to benchmark and secure the prospect for further application in their own cities.

Collaboration between CityNet and HUDCO is highlighted by HUDCO’s role as a host to CityNet India National Chapter. CityNet is also supporting HUDCO-HSMI in its international program.

📣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.
