Human population patterns in sub-Saharan African cities: data and tools for urban health assessments

Event Type Workshop
Start-End 25/09/2017 -  25/09/2017
Objective In the framework of the 14th International Conference on Urban Health (ICUH 2017), the MAUPP team organizes a pre-conference workshop on

Human population patterns in sub-Saharan African cities: data and tools for urban health assessments

The quantity and quality of human population datasets available for sub-Saharan African cities remain very poor, and the objective of the workshop is first to demonstrate the potentialities of newly developed data and methods in the field of urban population mapping and modelling for urban health decision making. Our broader objective is to meet potential users of our datasets in order to better design them to user needs and understand user learning requirements to inform the capacity building activities of the MAUPP project.
Topics Brief description and format:
  • Brief presentation of the MAUPP project (Catherine Linard)
  • Presentation of the available datasets (Michal Shimoni & ElĂ©onore Wolff)
  • Best practices for using the datasets and example applications (Jessica Steele & Catherine Linard)
  • Discussion with participants on (i) the utility of datasets in their own field of expertise, (ii) data limitations and (iii) specific requirements for urban health applications
Target audience:
Potential users of urban population datasets for sub-Saharan Africa, including policymakers, practitioners and researchers in public health, population health, urban planning etc.
