Resilient Public Spaces: sharing urban design practices in times of crisis
The Webinar Series “Resilient Public Spaces” is part of the dissemination product of a World Bank consultancy from Superwien, Participatory Urban Design, held in three cities (Dhaka in Bangladesh, Maputo in Mozambique, and Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic).

# 5: Climate Change Adaptation -

Climate change is playing out its effects more and more on the local level. As the sea level rises, so does the number of natural disasters such as extreme weather and floods. The lack of green spaces, disorderly occupation, and low soil permeability in cities result in growing problems in urban areas. Climate change reinforces the need to adapt cities to handle these situations and look for green initiatives of urban development. Large green areas and more sustainable responses are crucial in dense cities to avoid natural catastrophes as to make cities more liveable for all. At the same time, during COVID-related restrictions, the lack of green spaces negatively influenced the well-being of many people living in dense urban environments. The access to public green spaces and adaptation to climate change might have a common approach in applying nature-based solutions in urban planning.
