Urban Resilience for Covid19 - matchmaking for policy, practice & science
The coronavirus is continuing to spread, and particularly densely populated cities are hotspots of the outbreak. At the same time, cities are struggling with the social and economic consequences of the mitigation measures, that often hit the most vulnerable the hardest. To understand the dynamics from the bottom up, and capture the many behavioural uncertainties, researchers of the TPM Resilience Lab at the TU Delft have developed a prototypical model for The Hague that allows to ‘zoom in’ and test the implications of different policies.
In this match-making session, we first showcase the approach and the results for The Hague. Then, we discuss potential applications and questions in break-out sessions with policy-makers and practice. The aim of this session is to develop a joint road-map for innovation to improve urban resilience against covid 19.
