The project workshop “Developing strategies for resilient and liveable urban district development "planned in the framework of the initiative" Municipal Know-How for Host Communities in the Middle East", which is a new activity of Connective Cities in cooperation with Engagement Global, paying specific attention to municipalities hosting refugees. Jordan municipalities aim to improve their urban services and, therefore, seek a collaborative exchange with German cities and municipal enterprises.

The dialogue event took place in Amman, Jordan from 17 to 19 April 2018. The workshop facilitated the exchange of experiences between Jordan and German cities in the context of urban district development. With some project ideas having been developed at the first workshop in November, participants had the opportunity to refine the project ideas on basis of the Urban Nexus approach as methodological frame. New participants therefore had the chance to introduce their varying urban challenges, which have been developed into project ideas this time.

All in all, 5 German and 30 Jordan representatives from 14 different municipalities in Germany and Jordan took part in the workshop.
