Request for Material for October CAP Newsletter

In celebration of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) 2011 theme of "Building National Resilience, Building Global Resilience", we are seeking submissions to the next CAP Newsletter due for release in mid-October.  This would then feed into our ‘State of Commonwealth Cities Symposium – Building Resilience in our Cities’ event which is taking place 20-21 October, in Brisbane, Australia (further details to come soon).

It would be greatly appreciated if we could receive submissions from the member countries about what’s happening in their respective planning professions relative to this theme, in particular to the focus topics of – Gender in Planning, Food Security, Disaster Management, and any general experiences of planners in managing and measuring the ‘state of cities’.  All types and scales of submissions welcome – short articles, book reviews, reports on events, announcement of future events, new websites, etc. etc.

Could all submissions please be sent to Sonia Kirby, Editor CAP News (
