The 2018 SALURBAL Knowledge-to-Policy (KtP) Forum will take place from 8-9 November in Mexico City. It will convene SALURBAL researchers and key regional stakeholders from the public, private and civic sectors to explore mechanisms for the effective integration of scientific knowledge in regional urban policy-making processes and to promote sustainable, inclusive policies for urban health. The forum will be highly participatory, emphasizing opportunities for dialogue and exchange between the scientific community and policy-relevant actors, and highlighting useful tools and actions for fostering ongoing collaboration among sectors and disciplines.

In particular, the Forum will:

  • present preliminary insights and hypotheses from SALURBAL research;
  • identify regional policy needs and relevant policy-making structures, so as to better orient project research and policy recommendations;
  • identify and maximize synergies with ongoing and emerging initiatives and relevant actors across the region;
  • collaboratively explore and design structural mechanisms for the effective dissemination of policy-relevant insights from SALURBAL and other regional knowledge producers, and for their successful localization and implementation in cities across Latin America.
