WP#7: Coordination, Communication & Dissemination

WP#7 consolidates the structures of joint project collaboration with our partners at the level of science, implementation, dissemination and utilization.

Internally, coordination ensures trans-disciplinary integration. Externally, the activities are managed with the implementation and dissemination partners reaching out to different target groups to ensure maximum impact.

Sustainability is a transversal issue. To achieve a viable implementation, with a sustained impact, we pursue a trans-disciplinary and holistic approach incorporating innovative methods and expertise from various fields.

The work package teams will cooperate together, share their findings and develop joint deliverables. Tools and products will systematically build upon each other. Learning curves and feedback loops will be incorporated into the project design.

Our project promotes sustainable buildings and sustainable urban development in Cambodia from a people-centred perspective whose connecting scientific-conceptional, analytical and superior normative bracket is always the quality of urban life.

With this project, our multi-disciplinary team focuses on aligning people’s needs and aspirations with tools to benefit and enhance their living. We believe this will lead to major effects on urban sustainability through more energy- and resource-efficient buildings. The results we seek are no less than significantly lowered pollutant emissions, an increase of urban green, a healthier urban climate, raised awareness among decision makers, modified behaviour among the citizens and an overall better quality of urban life.

Our Build4People Scientific Advisory Board will ensure that our measures are demand-driven and adapted to the local context.
