The aim of this 'knowledge partnership' project was to establish and build an understanding of the crucial role of peri-urban ecosystems by underlining the inter-complementarity between the livelihoods of the peri-urban inhabitants and the contribution of ecosystems in urban resilience and to further mainstream ecosystem-resilience integration in capacity development programmes of apex institutions.


The key activities entailed assessing the knowledge needs and capacity gaps on linkages between peri-urban ecosystems and urban resilience and find the pathways to address the issue through existing research outcomes and practice-based experiences. This includeds the development of relevant knowledge products, policy briefs, and undertaking advocacy initiatives for proper management and governance of peri-urban areas and its ecosystems.
