As the world experiences the climate change, low income countries and developing countries are be the most affected one. The level of poverty, the rapid pace of urbanization and a lack of education about climate change and the missing planning and design mechanism increases vulnerability and aggravate the impacts of climate change in these countries.
The idea of this program is to develop holistic understanding of how climate change affects the marginalized one. The course will sequentially explore the stages of analysis through the mapping to bring the compressive understanding of communities and their spatial pattern
Innovative urban policies and practices have shown that adaptation to climate change effects is possible and can be built into development plans and design. These include co-design through existing networks and systems, community-based initiatives, role of NGOs and governance. This program will explore innovative approaches to put above things in larger perspective of climate change.
Urban design and planning can address some of the underlying risk factors linked to climate change and related technological and infrastructural as well as ecological disasters and reduce the exposure of the people and assets. This program intends to strengthen the qualitative assessment of the adaptability and resilience in marginalized communities.
