The International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) has posted a blog taken from an extended interview with Kota Kita’s Director, John Taylor, about urban policies designed to reduce vulnerability for riverbank communities. IIED is a world-renowned think-tank that publishes a number of journals that support development practitioners, such as Environment and Development. The interview was conducted by David Sattherwaite in October last year.

The Kota Kita is a partner of Global Platform for the Right to the City and participated in the Asia Meeting, hosted in Surabaya (Indonesia), in December 2015.

While Kota Kita is most active promoting participation and good governance through our projects and training, we also generate knowledge as a research institution. In 2015 Kota Kita published manuals and booklets on: climate governance, informal public transportation, bicycling for women and girls, and gender-sensitive approaches to climate change vulnerability assessments. In 2015 we also published 4 articles, or book chapters, in peer reviewed journals. Over 50 of Kota Kita’s publications can be downloaded on the Library page of kotakita.org.
