Speakers

Description

Delta regions across the world are rich in natural resources and economic opportunities. As a result, they have historically been home to dense, growing urban communities. The process of urbanization is often rapid and results in formal and informal urban fabric. Planned and unplanned urbanization processes both affect delta infrastructures.  A variety of institutions and stakeholders generate these simultaneous processes. 

What is the relationship between formal-informal and planned-unplanned urbanization processes in the world’s deltas? How do they affect the urban water system and the allocation of flood risks? How does the physical battle for space relate to various stakeholders and their financial, executive and judicial capacities? The webinar will discuss some of these interdependencies.
