A TEAM of world-class poverty researchers and architects are leaving for Bangladesh to launch an annual ‘conversation’ with people living in extreme poverty.
This year’s theme of the ‘Rajendrapur Conversation’ organised by the Brooks World Poverty Institute (BWPI) at The University of Manchester will be global warming and will take place from 24 to 28 January.
It will provide a unique opportunity for the poor of Bangladesh capital, Dhaka to discuss their experiences and ideas on adapting cities to climate change with world renowned experts.
It will result in an action plan and a series of pilot projects to be announced at the International Conference on Urban Poverty and Climate Change in Dhaka on January 28.
