Increasing urbanisation and per capita GDDP

Creators:

Bhawna Welturkar, Shrimoyee

Organisation and country:

Center for Study of Science, Technology & Policy, India

Description:

Urbanisation and GDDP (Gross Domestic District Product) follow similar trends in growth. As the GDDP in the state has been growing, so has urbanisation. This relationship however, also highlights the growing inter-regional disparity in economic growth. Instead of facing growing urbanisation as a disadvantage to sustainable development, it would be wiser to ask the following question: If cities are engines of growth, then the challenge is how can Karnataka leverage from its urbanisation potential and ensure balanced regional development?

Identity Crisis: The Israeli ID System

Creators:

Joumana Al Jabri, Ahmad Barclay, Conor McNally, Ramzi Jaber

Organisation and country:

Visualizing Impact, Lebanon

Description:

The mainstream media portrays Israel and Palestine as two distinct entities in conflict, governed by two separate authorities. In reality, the Israeli Ministry of the Interior controls the entire population of Israel, Jerusalem, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip through its determination of ID status. The five different ID statuses enforce a hierarchy of rights within this territory, while excluding refugees entirely. Visualizing Palestine developed its ‘Identity Crisis’ visual to raise awareness in the run up to the Knesset’s 2014 vote on the Entry Law. Released in Arabic, English, and Hebrew, the visual particularly targets rights defenders in Israel, Palestine, and internationally. It aims to generate awareness about the deeper inequalities that underscore the Palestinian-Israeli issue.
