Erwin Nugraha

I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Twente, Netherlands, and was also a Postdoctoral researcher in the 4TU.DeSIRE programme. My broader research intersects between climate change and global urban studies, with a focus on the politics and governance of climate change adaptation, urban environmental justice and planetary decolonisation. My research at the University of Twente involved evaluating systemic adaptation in water-related risks and working with diverse regional practitioners in the North Sea Region to test and experiment with a whole-system approach to climate change adaptation. I was one of the recipients of the Allianz Climate Risk Research Award in 2017.

My involvement within the 4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering was to conduct research on transformational adaptation to climate change in the context of coastal urban areas. The aim of the study is to critically evaluate and examine societal mechanisms of transformation in climate adaptation in response to the intensifying climate crisis.

 The Centre plays an important role in responding to diverse topics of resilience, using its transdisciplinary community of researchers, collective expertise, and educational platform to accelerate societal and transformative resilience.
