Conference Partners

In a session chaired by Nancy Holman (LSE), Kiana Otsuka (Oahu Metropolitan Planning) and Swenja Surminski (LSE Grantham Research Institute) will be discussing planning strategies for sea level rise in urban areas.

Cities and regions across the world are experiencing pressures on the housing, governance and sustainability fronts. Challenges such as creating sustainable transport links, enhancing local democracy or tackling housing shortage push urbanists to think creatively. Founded in 1966, LSE's MSc Regional and Urban Planning Studies (RUPS) programme has established its reputation as a key player in urban innovation with alumni working in public policy, architecture, think tanks and government across the world. Our new series Progressing Planning is designed to showcase LSE's impact on urban issues by bringing together academics and RUPS alumni. In so doing, we aim to show how research at LSE links to practice across the world.

This interactive session will bring together professionals, academics and the public around presentations and a general discussion.

Panelists

Kiana Otsuka is a Transportation Planner at the Oahu Metropolitan Planning Organization in Honolulu (Hawaii) and a MSc Regional and Urban Planning Studies alumna (LSE).

Swenja Surminski is Head of Adaptation Research at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, part of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), overseeing social science research projects on climate adaptation, Loss and Damage of climate change, and disaster risk finance with a geographic scope ranging from the UK to developing countries.
