Hybrid Training Course on Urban Resilience


2. November 2023 - 10. November 2023    

The Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC) and the International Urban Resilience Academy (IURA) of SDU join to hold a hybrid training course on Urban Resilience on the 02.11.-10.11.2023.

The training is aimed to build the core skills and competencies for urban resilient transition, including fundamentals of urban resilience in research, climate science, international and national policies, and resilience in action. Participants will be introduced to the Process Design Methodology, a guiding framework for developing strategic and action plans for urban resilient transition in their own local contexts. This methodology consists of four main steps: (1) System analysis and stakeholders’ mapping (2) Forecasting of trends and drivers (3) Visioning & strategy (4) Developing an Action Plan.

The onboarding for the training course, consisting of fundamental issues will be conducted online (4 Hours spread over two days). This will be followed by a five day in-person training in Bangkog, Thailand. An exposure visit will be organized for the participants to gain first-hand experience of different actions implemented in the city of Bangkok (one of the Megacities in Asia) for enhancing urban resilience.

The training will be strongly based on peer-to-peer learning, enabling the participants to share their challenges and experience in tackling climate change action at local level. At the end of the training participants will be familiar with the key steps for the development of a draft resilience action plan for a city.
