3rd BOVA Open Network Meeting/ UN-Habitat IG-UTP symposium
Yes, for our final BOVA Open Network Meeting we will partner with UN-Habitat at their Second International Symposium on the International Guidelines on Urban and Territorial Planning. The venue will be the spectacular Mohammed VI Polytechnic University located in the municipality of Benguerir, Morroco HERE
We are in the early stages of planning, but the idea is to have 1 day for training, 2 days conference and 1 day site visits. The training will be on how to integrate health into urban and territorial planning and will be of great benefit to BOVA members keen to do this for vector control. The conference days will include presentations from our pump-prime projects and we will use these to showcase our new research area (VBDs and the built environment). There will be opportunities to network with existing and potential partners and on the last day field trip(s) are planned for knowledge sharing. I will send further newsletters once the details are finalised. Also keep an eye on our website for updates.
