key issues
Key Issues
  • Broader urban landscape and operating context
  • Recognize the rural-urban difference in approaches, tools, expertise and response strategies
  • Understanding urban stakeholders in and beyond WASH sector and need for connectivity-fragmentation of sectors
  • Analyze urban context, functions, services and municipal systems
  • Coordination of urban stakeholders and engaging National and Local Governments

  • Actions and approaches to build recovery and longer term considerations from the start

Leaving behind capacity to manage and sustain

principle outcomes

  • Take stock of existing assessments methodologies, improve assessments to understand pre and post crisis urban contexts including capacity assessment, satellite mapping
  • Planning for skills gaps and partnerships
  • Understanding urban stakeholders, connectivity and capacities for urban responses
  • Improve coordination of urban response at national/local level (territorial, area based)

  • Pilot approaches (regional/city) on urban response for

improving preparedness

8. Undertaking cost benefit analysis of strategies for urban

funding/making smarter investments with key partners

  • Donor engagement in taking this agenda forward
  • Advocacy piece on 5 issues to consider in a

humanitarian response in urban context
