Making science work for development

Urban Living with Water

17 - 28 July 2017
Vienna, Austria

This summer school will address basic principles of Integrated Storm Water Management (ISWM) approach in urban areas, including Low Impact Development (LID), Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS), and Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD). Course focus will be on opportunities and limitations for ISWM approach implementation in Low-Rise High Density (LRHD) housing areas. As addition to basic principles and criteria for urban planning and design of LRHD areas, you will see how ISWM elements and measures are mimicking natural hydrological processes in urban environment. You will visit many exemplar Vienna locations, and you will be a part of multidisciplinary team that will work on the redesign project at selection location in Vienna.
