Sustainable River Cities
CM | 1.25
Date: Tuesday, April 16
Activity Code: S655
Room: Columbus Hall K/L
Track: Water: Too Much, Too Little, Too Polluted Symposium
If not managed properly, flood control infrastructure can harm the sustainability of ecosystems and communities in the floodplain. Understanding the natural functions of river floodplains—and devising adaptive practices to increase floodplain resiliency—can help planners protect vulnerable communities and ecosystems. Explore the concept of sustainable river cities during this multidisciplinary design workshop that highlights the “Dutch Dialogues” model successful implemented in post-Katrina New Orleans.
