What you will learn
One can say that communities on the emerging world are more resilient, since they face more complex social, economic and environmental challenges than the global north. Nevertheless, it is imperative to go beyond that simplistic idea of struggling for survival. Emerging economies offer a fertile ground to conduct research on how to use these complex threats as an opportunity to build better urban environments.
This section of the course will shed some light on case studies of resilience and risk management that applies alternative approaches on the topic.
