Urgent planning challenges in Iraq and Somalia.

In November 2015 we organised the symposium planning and post-conflict cities. With this event, we will continue the discussion on how planning could contribute both in planning both during and after conflict as well as reflect on the outcomes of the symposium.

There are many cities being retaken by forces in which fighting has been going on. Both Aleppo and Mosul are being retaken by government forces, and reconstruction planning will follow. However, we observe that there is still limited knowledge and discussion on planning approaches to these sensitive situations.

This includes a range of issues, from informal development, internally displaced persons, and the transition from humanitarian to a development perspective,

The presentation will discuss some of recent challenges in Mosul and we will share some experiences from planning in Afghanistan.
