Accelerating climate change and rapid urbanisation across the globe have created an imperative for resilience against natural catastrophes to be factored into urban development and management from the earliest stages of decision-making.

Speakers include:

  • Andrew Coburn, Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies
  • Matthew Free, ARUP
