Urban resilience to water challenges under deep uncertainty

Started: October 2014

Supervisors: Dr Ana Mijic; Dr Kaveh Madani

Description of Research

There is uncertainty regarding future climate change and other key parameters such as land use, which affect flood risk. The interaction of these parameters leads to a condition known as deep uncertainty, which poses challenges on how to best adapt to future urban flood risk. The aim of this research is to combine existing decision making frameworks and modify them to include factors such as flexibility, the value of ecosystem services and solutions to flooding that go beyond civil infrastructure.
