Globally, arid coastal regions face a fundamental water challenge. Water supplies will continue to decrease while flooding and water inundation will increasingly threaten our coastlines. Instead of the water shortages we expect in a dry climate, this session showcases the prospect of too much water on arid lands.
Explore how arid regions’ vulnerable relationship with water can be transformed both inland and at the coast’s edge.
Learn to apply environmentally responsive strategies specific to arid regions to ensure resiliency along desert coastlines.
Capitalize on the growing momentum surrounding the revitalization of infrastructure as drought, flood and inundation measures.
Explore adaptive multi-beneficial solutions integrating parks and open space together with improved transit, viable housing, and renewable energy.
