Water Resilient Recovery: A Course on Bridging the Gap between Disaster Risk Recovery and Water Resilient Planning
This short course focuses on aligning the short-term focus of disaster recovery and the long term scope of climate resilient planning. The face-to-face portion of this course will be held at The HEAD Foundation facilities in Singapore.
The course consists of an online portion covering much of the theory and background. Participants can run through the material and perform task at their own pace, which makes the course ideal for high level practitioners and executives. The second part of the course will consist of a 1-week face-to-face training in Singapore with a focus on skill and application. Participants will develop a take-home plan tailored to their particular conditions and needs.
The course builds on the knowledge acquired from IHE-Delft courses such as Urban Flood Management and Disaster Risk Mitigation, Water Resources Planning, Water Sensitive Cities, and Water Conflict Management, among others. Yet, the focus on resilient recovery is new and offers an innovative approach that differs from the typical courses on disaster management, flood risk management or climate adaptation.
