Prior to the TISOLS symposium we organise several workshops  on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 April.

Workshop 1: Governance and subsidence
Saturday 18 April, 13:30-17:30

Subsidence is an issue that involves many policy fields, complex technical aspects and governance embedment. There is a need for an integrated approach in order to manage subsidence and to develop appropriate strategies and measures that are effective and efficient on both the short and long term. Urban (ground)water management, adaptive flood risk management and related spatial planning strategies are just examples of the options available. In this course we will go into the following topics:

  • Strategies and action perspectives
  • Roles and responsibilities of different actors
  • Adaptation pathways

Participants will work on a case study of a subsiding city, using a methodology developed for dealing with subsidence.
