This abstract has open access
Abstract Summary
At this year’s World Planning Congress in Jakarta, ISOCARP continues with its’ interactive Cool Planner Session, tackling the challenges, the thrills and the responsibilities planning profession faces in the context of climate change. The upcoming Cool Planner Session focuses on South East Asia, and examines the profile and the design skills Cool Planner needs in this region, in order to help cities become more resilient. As the first Cool Planner Session in Bodo, (Norway) has shown, the profession of urban planning is no longer limited to urban space only – it has expanded to other fields, and merged with other expertises. The aim of this year’s Session is to showcase and discuss the examples and challenges of what it means “designing for resilience”. Can we frame the main ingredients of the City Resilience Design, how can we further develop and promote it? What is the role of technology and what planners need to know and learn in this field? How can design help make realistic, bankable climate resilience projects for neighborhoods and districts? The Session will use mixed methodology of Talks and Peer-to-Peer Experts Panel. The topics addressed in the Panel will be complemented by Talks – short presentations of projects, best practices and experiences from urban professionals across many fields of climate change resilience, with relevance to Asian, South Asian and particularly Indonesian context. Guests and speakers: GreenCityWatch Amsterdam, UN Habitat Regional Office Asia-Pacific Urbanscapes Studio of the World Bank Group (WBG), Centre for Livable Cities Singapore, EcoShape Amsterdam, UN Studio Amsterdam, Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund (UCCRTF) of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), LandCivilisationCompositions Hong Kong Names of the guests and speakers to be confirmed.
