Workshop: Methodology developement for the research on urban settlements in high risk areas in LAC - relocation, mitigation and prevention

Type: Training Course Date: 31 Oct - 03 Nov 2011 Location: Mexico (Mexico City)

Background on the Research

The objective of the research is to contribute towards the understanding of the connection between urban development and disaster risk reduction at the scale of La Paz and Guatemala City. The analysis will develop site-based narratives in four selected settlements aiming to offer an in-depth examination on how risk is perceived and constructed (at community and at city level) and how that influences policy and planning on disaster and risk reduction, especially within discourses dealing with relocation.

Aims of the Workshop

By bringing together key expert in this field, the consultancy team and Oxfam staff, the workshop aims to explore the relationship between urban development and disaster risk reduction strategies. The workshop also aims to examine the role of relocation as a strategy of disaster risk reduction and its implications to urban development processes. The discussions hope to focus on the context of Latin American cities, particularly reflecting on the context of the two case study of the research: La Paz and Guatemala city.
