Risk thinking versus resilience thinking
Organizer: Royal HaskoningDHV
|Our session is focused on risk thinking versus resilience thinking and the use of objective data versus subjective data in urban adaptation and resilience design. During the session we will showcase several modelling tools, two practical cases and explain how objective data and subjective data play a role in the design process. We focus on risk versus resilience and will experience how discussions are influenced when different types of data are used. One of the tools that will be used is STAIN. This tool is developed for participatory resilience strategy design in cities. The focus in this tool is on subjective data and local area knowledge and uses a personal interpretation of what resilience means to a particular city as a starting point. With this approach a level of understanding is reached between the different participants around the table. This level of understanding creates more opportunities for collaboration between cities and citizens, companies or housing associations and accellerates the process from resilience strategy to a resilience plan. We will follow the urban adaptation process of 2 case studies and show examples of where objective risk data played an important role and where subjective knowledge supports the creation of a resilience strategy and plan. We finalise the session with a discussion on how the two types of data could best be combined for a higher efficiency in the urban adaptation process.
