Issues in city growth and sustainble
• Large economic projects currently a preferred
strategy in city competitiveness
• What does this do to environmental
• What is the impact on social inequalities?
• How can participatory knowledge management
contribute to more resilient urban development?
• urban governance as essential context
Main focus of project
• how governments and citizens in cities with different
patterns of economic growth use participatory spatial
knowledge management towards more resilient
sustainable development
• Comparing variety of political and economic conditions
in fast-growing cities
• Comparing inclusive social strategies and environmental
approaches and practices conducive to SD
• Develop model on participatory spatial knowledge
management in urban governance contributing to SD
• ten cities across four countries (India, South Africa, Peru
and Brazil)
• Methodology: city case studies, including inter-active
knowledge building with local communities, practitioners
Learning from resilience thinking
• Resilient development= development that
creates, enables and sustain services and
institutions, generating new opportunities for
residents,.. (Dodman 2010).
• Not necessarily ‘bouncing back’ if situation was
very unequal
• Resilience: system redundancy, diversity,
flexibility (not locked in pathways), multi-level
links (landscape, regions, ecosystems),
supporting self-organizing capacity

Participatory knowledge management:
instrument to increase adaptive capacity
• Recognizing different types of knowledge
– tacit, practice-based, community-based, codified,
• Analyzing knowledge generation through participatory
processes – setting priorities and their criteria and
recognizing it as political process
• Analyzing ‘ spaces’ : invited, negotiated, claimed
• Participatory spatial mapping – reflecting spatial
diversity, concentrations, relations and realities
