Dear all,

I thought the call for applications below would be of interest to some
of you, as mapping techniques could be a powerful advocacy tool for
many struggles relating to urban evictions and resettlements, poverty
and livelihoods.  We would much value applications from groups
involved in such struggles.  With apologies for cross-posting.


[Please feel free to circulate widely]
