November 2020 | SECO, IDB, World Bank, Asian Development Bank, Cities Alliance | Zurich (exact time and date to be defined).
Lecturer: Prof. Hubert Klumpner.
In collaboration with SECO, this event will bring together some of the world’s major players and funders of urban development, including the World Bank, the Cities Alliance, the Cities Development Initiative for Asia, and IDB. These are institutions with a decisive impact on how questions of urban development are framed, how funds are targeted, and how decision-makers at the city level prioritize and deliver major projects and programmes. Reaching out beyond academia, it is a chance for us to explore how together we can devise collaborative solutions to the most pressing urban challenges.
