Influencing the social protection agenda in Rajasthan to support urban informal workers
The Indian Institute of Human Settlements (IIHS) has developed a Framework for policy and
practice which has influenced an emerging social protection agenda for Rajasthan.
Achieving sustainable cities requires a step change in the capacity of urban actors to anticipate and plan for the challenges and opportunities of the future. PEAK Urban’s vision is that such a step change leads to future policy, practice, and investment decisions which enhance the development of ‘inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable cities’(SDG11).
To contribute towards this outcome, our Theory of Change commits to share research with external stakeholders and engage with decision makers around the implications of research. Influencing the social protection agenda in Rajasthan to support urban informal workers is just one example across the programme of where PEAK research and engagement has helped strengthen the capacity of cities to deal with next generation challenges.
