Rationale: Why have you selected this case study area?

After listening to online lecture of Asan Suwanarit from Thailand, who showed us how big problem flooding can be, I've decided to explore this problem more in other countries. There are many countries which have problems with flooding, but India is a very poor country that doesn't have a set of possibilities for expensive solutions that would prevent flooding. New Delhi is the capital of India, which lies on the river Yamuna. This river often causes flooding and unfortunately takes victims.

Authors' perspectives

As a landscape architect, throughout my studies, whatever I analyzed, I alwayes needed to look try climate adaptation aspect. Climate is constantly changing which is crucial to future planning of any landscape. Having that in mind, and analyzing the history of similar climate changes, I can propose solutions for mitigation of the case study area problems.

Landscape and/or urban context

  • Biogeography, land use patterns, cultural features, overall character, history and dynamics
  • ratio of green/blue and sealed/built-up areas

Illustration: Map; sketches; short descriptive analyses

Cultural/social/political context

  • Brief explanation of culture, political economy, legal framework

Illustration: Bullet points, image, background notes

Local Climate

  • What are the climatic conditions at present? Have there been extreme weather events in the near past?
  • Which changes are expected? Is there any evidence?

Illustration: Table or time line

Analysis of vulnerability

  • If you consider these potential changes - which aspects/functions of your case study would be affected?
