Adapting cities for climate resilience

May 4 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Coastal cities are at the frontline of the climate change battle. Already we have seen sea level rises submerging low-lying city areas permanently or more frequent, heavy rainfall causing flash flooding and intense cyclones resulting in costly and devastating destruction to coastal livelihoods, infrastructure and property. So how can urban areas reduce or adapt to changing climate risks? In this webinar, we have Professor Joerg Baumeister to talk on “Cities+1m: Urban Development Solutions for Sea Level Rise” and Mr Pradesh Ramiah to speak on “Adapting to Climate Change, the Gold Coast Experience”.

Please do join us for a deep discussion on this topic on adapting cities for climate resilience with our two speakers.

Each speaker will have 25 minutes to speak followed by a 10-min Q&A session. The facilitator for this webinar is Ms Leeanne Bond FTSE.
