NEPAL - Heritage Cities in Asia - Bhaktapur, Nepal - Nov 2011
In this November 2011 report, part of ACHR's project on "The poor in heritage cities", Chawanad Luansang and Suphana Sophonpanich (two community architects from Thailand) make an assessment of how Bhaktapur's poor and original inhabitants have fared since the city was declared to be part of the Kathmandu Valley's World Heritage site. The monuments and ancient architects are in great danger from development and earthquakes, but what about the people who live there?
PAKISTAN - Street markets the world over - Jan 2019
Informal hawkers continue to be evicted in cities like Karachi, Bangkok, Manila and Jakarta. The pictures in this folder were put together in January 2019 by Arif Hasan and Bushra Sarwar to show the agencies involved in making planning decisions in Karachi that hawkers need not be evicted, but can be resettled in a manner that is aesthetic and does not create congestion or hindrance to vehicular or pedestrian movement. In fact cities around the world are embracing street markets at the time Asia is eliminating them.

PAKISTAN - Perween Rahman on Mapping in Karachi - Feb 2013
Perween Rahman was with us in Bangkok in February 2013 for a big ACHR regional gathering - one of the rare meetings that busy and committed woman agreed to leave her work in Karachi to attend. During a special session on community surveys and mapping, Perween and her colleagues made a delightful and inspiring presentation about the maps they have been making and using for the last 32 years in Karachi and other parts of Pakistan. "We're all mappers," she told us, in that voice of hers, which went up and down the scale like a flute. "We love maps! We are all the Ninja Turtles of mapping! Maps are to our work what x-rays are to a doctor's: they tell us where the problem is and how to resolve it." Although we couldn't have known it at the time, this was Perween's last presentation to her friends and colleagues in Asia, her farewell message to us. This is the full transcription of Perween's presentation.
