We, at the Resilient and Inclusive Cities Lab, provide evidence on the role of natural infrastructure for urban resilience and climate adaptation in Asia-Pacific.

RESILIENT AND
INCLUSIVE CITIES LAB

Our world has become urban. While this opens up opportunities, it also exacerbates some environmental and social challenges such as flooding, urban heat island, or mental and physical health issues. Conserving and creating natural infrastructure–parks, trees, green roofs, urban forests–can respond to these challenges by leveraging important natural benefits such as retaining water, cooling the air, providing opportunities for recreation, and supporting climate solutions.


The Resilient and Inclusive Cities Lab at Nanyang Technological University aims to increase the evidence base on the role of natural infrastructure for urban resilience and climate adaptation in Asia-Pacific, and inform policy and practice to create more resilient and inclusive cities. The research is supported by the Singapore National Research Foundation (NRFF12-2020-0009).

PERRINE HAMEL

  • LinkedIn

I am an Assistant Professor at Nanyang Technological University (NTU)’s Asian School of the Environment. My research and teaching focus on urban ecosystem services, ecosystem-based management, and water resource management. Prior to joining NTU, I was a senior scientist with the Natural Capital Project at Stanford University, where I conducted ecosystem services assessments and developed decision-support tools. I am also the co-founder of Co-Risk Labs, a cooperative promoting reflexive and collaborative practices in the field of climate and disaster risk management. I graduated with a Master in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Ecole Centrale Nantes, France, and a PhD from Monash University, Australia, and have previously worked as an environmental engineer in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
