- UN-Habitat / Urban, Legislation, Land and Governance Branch
The City Safety Lab – an innovative and collaborative platform – takes advantage of existing local capacities and experience in order to achieve more inclusive, resilient, sustainable and, in particular, safe cities by promoting a mechanism that will allow for engaging all relevant stakeholders – including academia, civil society, local government, private sector etc. – in the gathering of data, analysis and monitoring of multifaceted causes of crime, and potential ways to address them. A participatory safety audit helps to connect relevant local stakeholders in a conversation on local causes of crime, in order for them to engage and collaborate in discussing potential solutions for the problems that were encountered.
Hence, the main objective of the training event is to exchange knowledge on the safer cities approach and increase the capacity of partners, including local and national governments, and other UN-Habitat partners, on delivering measurable improvements in reducing crime and violence in the city through a multi-level and multi-sectorial approach.
The workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to explore how they can contribute to urban safety and the way their personal mind sets and attitudes influence the success or not of collaborative interventions. This approach looks at the role of expectations on others and self-impact trust and performance and to explore the tool that will be used to build strong relationships in the City Safety Lab.
This event is fully booked
