Berlin Security Conference

CUDRR+R’s Ebru Gencer was a panelist the International Rescue Committee’s (IRC) Session on Climate Change and Urban Displacement at Berlin Security Conference on September 2020. The Session moderated by IIED’s Lucy Earle focused on risks and opportunities rising from the new reality of climate change displacement. Interesting case examples included Uganda, Somalia, Kenya and Bangladesh. Ebru Gencer made a presentation on “Inclusive Planning for Climate and Social Resilience in Cities” and provided examples from CUDRR+R’s recent project in Santa Ana, El Salvador.
