Urban Water Management

Project 1: Monitoring Water Sensitive Urban Design performance 

The set-up (3)_edited.jpg


This project aims to explore the potential of a low-cost water sensor in monitoring work. Its performance was compared with a traditional water sensor. Low-cost sensor showed good accuracy. With acceptable accuracy and affordability, the low-cost sensor is worth for further testing and use in monitoring.

Project leads: Perrine Hamel (Principal Investigator), Ding Ning (PhD student)​

Deforestation and unplanned development increase flood risk. This project aims to understand the conditions needed to mitigate the risks and incorporate them into urban planning. Research is advanced in modelling riverine flooding in response to changes in land management and flood exposure & risk. Current work focuses on a case study in the Chindwin Basin, Myanmar.
