Urban intersections: visualising hidden resource flows

When: Tuesday 24th November 12:00 pm GMT

Hosts: Laura Franco Henao, Sarah O'Carroll

Speakers: Solophina Nekesa, Paul Currie

Resource flow analysis in cities relies mostly on quantitative methods which often overlook informal sector activities. However, informal actors provide vital services in African cities, and must be part of our future imaginaries of cities. The Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated existing challenges for this sector such as access to food and limitations to transport and infrastructure. To achieve urban resilience, food-, water- and energy-security, and successful decision making, we need to include analysis methods that bring to light hidden resource flows in our cities.

Join us in this episode with experts from ICLEI Africa . We’ll explore how photography and storytelling can complement quantitative understanding of livelihoods, resources, and infrastructures in cities from across Africa.
