The Workshop titled ‘Flood resilient planning strategies for cultural heritage in Southeast Asia: SEA’
The Workshop titled ‘Flood resilient planning strategies for cultural heritage in Southeast Asia: SEA’ is a trilateral research collaboration coordinated by Naresuan University (Faculty of Architecture): Thailand; the University of Lincoln (School of Design): United Kingdom; and the Centre for Regional Urban Studies: Vietnam. It is the 1st regional workshop under the support of the Newton Fund collaborated by the British Council and the Thailand Research Fund. The workshop venues were held from the 8th to the 11th January 2019 in IBIS Bangkok Riverside Hotel in Thailand. There were 30 participants across multi-disciplines either scholars or practitioners joining the workshop; which are 6 participants from the UK; 10 participants from Vietnam, 4 participants from the Philippines, and 10 participants from Thailand.
The result of the workshop has addressed three key objectives. First of all, it has encouraged a dialogue between scholars and researchers (from planning, design, landscape, cultural, heritage, and relevant disciplines) in the UK, Thailand, Vietnam and Philippines by sharing and discussing future challenges for flooding issues and cultural heritage resilience through broader perspectives. Secondly, it has offered a learning platform for early career academics to develop their building capacity in planning and practice through the support of our partner mentors. Finally, a new network of research on resilience and flooding strategies for cultural heritage has further developed between the UK and Southeast Asia cities.
