Fabulous Urban and the Heinrich Böll Stiftung

Inspiring examples and upbeat stories from Lagos, Can Tho and Jakarta.

Climate change, flooding, lack of infrastructure and jobs: Can such multi-facetted challenges develop into income opportunities for the urban poor? Can local construction and indigene living methods teach us innovative approaches on how to address flooding? And how do participatory methods in urban design and planning feed into this? Local Solutions provides a platform to participants in IABR–2014–URBAN BY NATURE– and other guests who are dealing with these questions and possible approaches.

Participants include Kelly Shannon, Bruno De Meulder, Daliana Suryawinata, Florian Heinzelmann, Philippe Urech, Taibat Lawanson and Fabienne Hoelzel.
Moderated by Thomas Häusler, chief science editor at SRF Radio.
