WP 3: Resilient retreat (University of Stuttgart, SURP)

WP 3 has the objective to incorporate and apply the monitoring framework in practice and to provide resilient solutions for retreat by developing concrete model-projects with relevant stakeholders. The framework enables determining the resilience-building and the cost-benefit effect of the analysed retreat typologies and subsequently developing best practice examples or model retreat projects in a gaming simulation. Henceforth, the model-projects need to go through a multi-stage process by investigating the planning phase, the transition phase as well as the potential phases of development and incorporation.

The development of a retreat design in a pilot study will be the final output. Based on provided data on suitable land by the urban growth model, a concrete resettlement site will be developed that reflects the best resilience and likewise cost-benefit prospect. The research in Metro Manila is framed by a cross-country analysis and a compilation that consult cases and experiences in the partner countries Thailand and Vietnam. The output will be retreat guidelines that draws on the intensive fieldwork and reflects various conditions and approaches of the Southeast Asian countries.
