Sustainable Megacities: Health, Risks, Resources. Part I – Spotlight: University of Cologne

Friday, November 20, 2020, 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM EST

Urbanization is fundamentally changing societies and landscapes in Asia. Yet the impact of major transformation processes is only partly understood. A deeper understanding of mega-urban governance, management, and culturally adapted forms of participation in civil societies is required to develop more sustainable ways of managing multiple risks and health challenges.

In this one-hour web-talk with audience Q&A, our experts will present their work on health and risk management in South and Southeast Asia. This event is the first in a four-part series organized by the North American liaison offices of the German universities of Cologne, Freiburg, and Heidelberg and the DWIH New York.
