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

Tuesday, February 17, 2015

6:30pm - 8:00pm

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 movies filmed on location by Next City and Still Life Projects in the cities of Bangkok, Da Nang, Phnom Penh and Surat. The screening will be 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 Next City and Still Life as part of the series Asia H20: How Water Issues are Changing an Urbanized Continent, which was funded by the Rockefeller Foundation.

The screening and discussion are co-sponsored by the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation, the Program on Crisis Leadership, and the Crisis Management Student Group, Harvard Kennedy School; MDes Risk and Resilience, Harvard University Graduate School of Design; and Next City.

Your registration is required to attend.
