A two-day online multi-stakeholder conference is being organized by the project consortium of the ‘H2O-T2S’ project – South Asia Consortium for Interdisciplinary Water Resources Studies (SaciWATERs), Hyderabad; University of Cologne; and Delft University of Technology – under the Transformations to Sustainability Programme in collaboration with School of Planning and Architecture, Bhopal, India.
The conference will be conducted virtually on the 18th and 19th of January 2022.
The conference will pull together voices and perspectives from multiple sectors and stakeholders –government, academia, international development sector, and the grassroot civil society, – in order to understand both common and contested solutions and directions towards sustainable periurban futures.
