Thursday, 16 June 2022

The DeSIRE Resilience Fellowship programme brings together researchers from different disciplines and different parts of the world. Recently, João Cortesão shares his recent work on climate-responsive adaptation of urban areas in an arid climate, in a collaboration with researchers from Chicago State University, Ain Shams University and Wageningen University. Aynaz Lotfata and João have met to develop their study on climate resilience in Cairo, Egypt. This is an ongoing interdisciplinary design research counting on the invaluable work of Hestia Zinsmeister and the priceless contributions of Samah El Khateeb, Gert-Jan Steeneveld, Josephine van Zeben, Zac Taylor and Wendy Guan Zhen Tan.

Stay tuned to know more about this study bringing Wageningen University, Chicago State University and Ain Shams University together around the climate-responsive adaption of urban areas in an arid climate.
