An Academic Talk on Flood Risk at the World Water Week 2016, Stockholm

Nuanchan Singkran

Assistant Professor Dr. Nuanchan Singkran from Faculty of Environment and Resource Studies, Mahidol University, is invited to give a talk at the World Water Week (WWW) 2016, Stockholm that will be organized during August 28 – September 2, 2016, at Stockholm, Sweden

According to the annual World Water Week this year, the Institute of Water Policy, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore, is organizing a workshop on “Policies and Governance to enhance urban resilience: impacts of droughts and floods” on August 31. The overall objective of this workshop is to hold in?depth discussions on the impacts of droughts and floods in the resilience of specific cities from the water, land use, energy, food, and environment perspectives. Discussions will focus on how cities prepare, cope, manage and recover from such extreme events. They will include preparedness, policy responses, roles of institutions (formal and informal), governance perspectives, infrastructure development, overall investments, technology, etc. Analyses should not be limited to the cities but to the basins and regions from which they get their resources and on which their resilience depends.

In this occasion, the institute called for extended abstracts from academics to submit their works for presenting at the institute’s workshop with some expense support. Asst. Prof. Singkran’s paper entitled "Flood overview and flood risk management for the Chao Phraya River Basin, Thailand" has been selected for an oral presentation during the workshop and for publication in the International Journal of Water Resources Development. Additionally, Mahihol University has provided subsidy support for Asst. Prof. Singkran to present her academic work and attend the WWW 2016. The draft program of the workshop at the WWW 2016 is as follow.
