Perspectives on Urban Flood Resilience: How Different Fields Tackle One of the World’s Most Prevalent Disasters
Flooding is a “wicked problem” that is complex and difficult to solve. Incomplete knowledge coupled with the large number of people and systems that are impacted add additional complexity to this challenge. Urban flooding is of particular concern as human populations concentrate in urban areas, which are often located in coastal or flood prone areas. This Cyberseminar series brings together scholars from a variety of perspectives and fields to share their research on urban flooding, recommendations for how to lessen future impacts or approach challenges, and highlight areas of needed research and collaboration. Hosted by CUAHSI, this series seeks to reach scientists at all stages of their careers, policy makers, and urban flood practitioners to establish connections between members of different fields, shed light on interdisciplinary research and methodologies, and to define calls to action for both research and practice. Join us Wednesdays this fall for Perspectives on urban flood resilience: How different fields tackle one of the world’s most prevalent disasters, a Cyberseminar series that seeks to bring together individuals from different backgrounds who are addressing the complex problem of urban flooding.
