INTERNATIONAL INTERDISCIPLINARY PLANNING STRATEGIES FOR HIGH DISASTER RISK AREA

The climate change challenge and possible natural disaster resulted from have become one of the emerging spatial planning issues. It requires cross-professional knowledge to understand the possible impacts of natural disasters which was lacked in the traditional training of planning education. Hence, the future planner should obtain ability to work with experts from different professional background and exchange experiences accordingly. Taiwan owns abundant natural resources and great variety of geographical landscapes as well as ecology. Rapid population growth in the metropolitan areas has resulted in urbanized areas extending to higher disaster risk places. Hence, it is an inevitable task for planners to propose special planning strategies for such areas that can react to both development pressure and environmental concerns. This course aims to introduce interdisciplinary knowledge in relation to disaster risk reduction planning and conducts actual workshops for local practice. We will collaborate with faculty members and students from other professional institutions to work on the selected site. The course requires students to work with their partner through frequent conference call meeting and at the end of semester all participants will gather and work on site for an intensive workshop.
