APTU and IIED research collaboration on Urban Resilience (2017-2018)

In 2017-2018, Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning, Thammasat University and International Institute for Environmental Development, UK, collaborated in a research project “Planning For Eco-Cities And Climate-Resilient Environments: Building Capacity For Inclusive Planning In The Bangkok Metropolitan Region (PEACE-BMR)”, funded by Newton Fund Institutional Link (British Council and Thailand Research Fund).

According to the project website, “[t]his collaboration aims to strengthen research links between the UK & Thailand to develop existing research capacity on urban climate resilience & inclusive, low carbon development. The collaboration will do this through building capacity of Thai researchers, raising awareness of urban stakeholders & incorporating local knowledge & practice into urban planning. This will equip urban actors with the skills and networks to address environmental & climatic issues facing Bangkok, with a specific focus on ensuring the inclusion of particularly vulnerable, low-income communities.”
