Resilient Mozambique

Aug 18 – Aug 28, 2018
Palma, Mozambique
Research Question

The workshop aims to actively contribute with a multi-scalar design strategy on the improvement of climate resilience and productivity of ecological infrastructure. Students will be involved in an on-site analysis of complex territorial dynamics that are currently threatening the fragile ecosystem of the Rovuma River delta, specifically in the surroundings of Palma. The workshop will offer a multidisciplinary approach through mapping sessions, data gathering and on-site analysis to contribute towards an actual implementation of design actions. The final output of this workshop will be framed within the activities of the Center for Resilient Cities and Landscapes of Columbia GSAPP in a format of publication and it will be delivered to the local authorities in Palma as series of strategic-design toolkits.
