Keynote (Prof. Richard Haigh) – International Conference on Geography and Global Sustainability

Prof. Richard Haigh delivered a keynote at the International Conference on Geography and Global Sustainability. The international conference was held online on 9th and 10th December 2021, and was organised by the University of Colombo, Sri Lanka. The keynote was entitled ‘Challenges and opportunities in an emerging and changing disaster risk landscape: Ciliwung River Basin, Indonesia’. It covered the characteristics of an increasingly complex risk landscape, drawing upon the case of the Ciliwung River and Jakarta, and Bandung as an urban agglomeration, as examples of the complex interdependencies that are non-linear. It also considered opportunities to scale up our efforts to tackle the increasing complexity and interdependency of risks, using examples from the work we are doing in the Ciliwung River Basin, as well as Bandung and Padang. The keynote was delivered on the 9th December 2021.
