The vulnerability in cities: the concept, mechanism and examplesAssistant Professor Naesun Park
University of Tokyo
About the talkAssistant Professor Naesun Park (Centre for Sustainable Urban Regeneration, University of Tokyo) will discuss his research into the factors that impact on sustainable development and planning. Assistant Professor Park will discuss the natural, economic, and social factors and risks that can inhibit sustainability in the city. In a globalized era, the vulnerability of one area impacts beyond its immediate environment - it is linked to other areas in one form or another. This vulnerability of cities is increasing and should be considered in a more global sense. Assistant Professor Park’s study on vulnerability in cities clarifies the cause and mechanism with world-wide case studies and development recommendations.
