Online Courses: Urban Climate Resilience And Natural Disaster Management

ISOCARP Institute and Think City Institute have partnered to develop Smarter, Dynamic, Greener, a series of three online courses that explore environmental and technological challenges in cities across Asia. The programme is oriented around actionable strategies to meet SDGs in the region and targets public and private sector professionals working in Asia. Drawing on up-to-date knowledge from a range of expert lecturers, each course will promote co-creative strategies for resilient development in Asian cities. 

Course Overview

This course was developed to address the increasing challenges and risks posed by climate change on urban areas, focusing on a range of frameworks and strategies to minimise impact. The course explores three main topics. 

The first, Modelling and Assessing Environmental Impact, focuses on the science of climate change and its environmental impact. Participants will explore climate modelling techniques and study various methodologies for environmental assessment. 

The second topic, Infrastructural Solutions for Climate Resilience, is dedicated to the understanding of the strategies, planning and design of climate-resilient infrastructure. 

Finally, the last topic, Mechanisms for sustainable change, explores the policies, practices and strategies aimed at promoting resilience, sustainability, and adaptation in the face of climate challenges.
