[SIWW] Adaptation in South East Asian Cities: Solutions for Heat Stress, Flooding & Planning an Integrated Vision for the Future
This session will bring together resilience expertise in the Netherlands and southeast Asia in a joint exchange of solutions kicked off by a high-level panel of representatives from Singapore and the Netherlands to reflect on the important role of international knowledge exchange and collaborations to help build resilient cities.
will focus more specifically on climate-resilient solutions to two of the most pressing challenges for the future of climate resilience in cities: flooding and heat stress. Additionally, we will take a closer look at the role of master planning and innovative solutions for adaptive integrated management and city planning in coastal cities, sharing strategies on long term adaptation visions.
Adaptation measures being addressed on this session will include resilient infrastructure, nature-based solutions, integrated management of water resources, innovative modeling, and coastal engineering to provide examples of initiatives for future-proof and resilient cities.
