Sonia Roitman engages in new project on urban planning and climate change adaptation in Apia

UQ|UP’s Sonia Roitman is working with colleagues from National University of Samoa and UN Women Samoa on a new research project.

Pacific Island Countries are urbanising and also face serious threats from climate change. The aim of this project is to understand the role of urban planning in adapting to climate change in urban areas, identifying the role played by stakeholders and the type of governance structure in place for this.
