August 23rd saw SLURC host the first ever high-level conference on the city’s economy, entitled “Formal and Informal Synergies towards a prosperous city”. Held at the Essential Kimbima Hotel in Aberdeen, this event saw national and international experts speaking on the topic.
The purpose of the conference was to initiate policy dialogue, debate, and engagement processes for inclusive urban planning by bringing together academics, central government, local authorities, communities, politicians, informal sector workers and NGOs to discuss what the livelihoods of informal sector residents contribute to the city.
As well as SLURC, the organisers were Njala University, The Barlett Development Planning Unit of University College London, YMCA-SL, Restless Development, BRAC SL and CODOHSAPA.
