Urban Resilience and Natural Hazards in Asia: Film Screening and Panel Discussion

As the effects of climate change intensify and rapid urbanization continues across many parts of Asia, the region faces increased vulnerability to a range of natural hazards. This event features four short films that highlight innovative strategies for building disaster resilience in several major Asian cities (Bangkok, Da Nang, Phnom Penh, and Surat), followed by a panel discussion featuring academics and practitioners with expertise in disaster risk reduction and urban planning and policy. The films were produced by the online magazine Next City as part of the series “Asia H20: How Water Issues are Changing an Urbanized Continent,” which was funded by the Rockefeller Foundation.

Co-sponsored by the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation, the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, the Program on Crisis Leadership, and the Crisis Management Student Group, Harvard Kennedy School; MDes Risk and Resilience, Harvard University Graduate School of Design; Harvard University Center for the Environment; and Next City.
