Building Resilient Urban Communities (BReUCom)

A project funded under EU Erasmus+ Program in the field of Capacity Building in Higher Education

Increased frequency of natural hazards and sea level rise are expected impacts of climate change in India. Marginalized urban settlements are often vulnerable to disaster due to their location in hazardous areas and the use of non-durable building materials, already today their inhabitants are therefore strongly affected by climate change. But amidst strives to meet climate targets, the poor’s needs are mostly overlooked.

In this context, there is an urgent need for paradigmatic shift in the education of graduate students in spatial planning and design as well as training of urban professionals from different back-grounds in order to confront upcoming challenges related to climate change impacts on urban informal settlements.

Concept NoteIndia’s arid and semi-arid climatic zones are traditionally heat-stressed. These are getting impacted the most due to changing climatic conditions. This programme focuses on developing a holistic understanding for enhancing the resilience of the built environment by exploring the various linkages between built structures, natural resources, socioeconomic conditions, technology, traditional knowledge practices, cultural capital, and community. Through the learnings from the field experience, the participants would be able to highlight the role of a built and unbuilt environment.
