7.Description of the Campus
The three day campus will start with a formal inauguration and exhibition followed by three thematic sessions, round table discussions on each theme, urban lab, tours, urban movies, drafting session, plannery session and end with Dhaka declaration.
Bangladesh is facing rapid spatial transformation across the urban-rural continuum. Ensuring increased mobility of people, connectivity among urban centres and delivery of services across the national geographical space has become an agenda to prepare Bangladesh a middle-income country by 2021, attain UN SDG 2030 and become a developed country by 2041. This path to a growth-driven economy has to negotiate vulnerabilities arising from climate change induced shocks and recurring natural disasters. Therefore, resilient capacities of settlement have to be in place across the rural-urban continuum through an inter-scalar approach. Thematic engagements for resilience-settlement linkages are explored within the following three broad Themes: housing and settlements, urban design and landscape, and energy and environment.
