Coastal urban development through the lenses of resiliency[go to overview]
Every city that incorporates the water-element in its fabric is confronted with the fundamental requirement of developing policies for driving development in the surrounding area, while balancing between economic growth, protection of the environmental, and safeguarding social cohesion. The recently accepted EU project CUTLER aims to develop effective policies to deal with such requirements for the economic and urban development of costal cities. In this talk, I will present a brief overview of the project, more specifically present how WeST plans to contribute towards 'sensing the social consequences' by data analysis and visualization techniques.
