“Integrated Planning and Development; Water Sensitive Analytical Perspectives and Models for the Sustainable Development of Urban Regions”
The three research projects FloodAdaptVN, IMECOGIP and PolyUrbanWaters as well as the SURE Facilitation and Synthesis Research project will host a parallel session on the topic “Integrated Planning and Development; Water sensitive analytical perspectives and models for the Sustainable Development of Urban Regions” at the 5th WPSC and the 16th APSA Congress in Bali, Indonesia.
approaches for trans– and interdisciplinary projects. The FloodAdaptVN project provides insights derived from the
spatiotemporal coastline dynamics analysis that can be used to understand the current flood risk in Central Vietnam. This insight will provide the base for scenario development that will serve as input for future flood risk modelling. The second contribution is from the IMECOGIP project, presenting the state of development of a toolbox that makes selected ES assessment methods available for urban planners. With a particular focus on water–
related ecosystem services: water–flow regulation, groundwater recharge, transpirative cooling. The project will discuss how they embed these assessments into the overarching toolbox and how they can foster sustainable development in urban areas. In the third presentation, approaches and methodologies for assessing and monitoring urban water resources will be discussed by the PolyUrbanWaters project. In particular, the ground realities and the context of secondary and tertiary southeast Asian cities and their challenges and experiences from the field.
In closure, the SURE Facilitation and Synthesis Research project will present project–related reference and reflection framework methods and discuss cross–sectional analysis approaches through digital tools for synthesis research in trans and inter–disciplinary projects.
