The costs and impacts of crises are significant and likely to increase in the coming years, particularly as a result of climate change. Cité-ID is interested in improving risk governance related to climate change and urban resilience to determine how to both limit and adapt to the effects of disasters.
This research axis aims to identify the enabling and hindering factors that influence risk governance in order to improve existing initiatives. In addition, it seeks to develop new knowledge about mechanisms and approaches for transforming governance to better manage risks in an integrated manner between organizations.
Research topics include the governance of disaster risks, such as floods or the COVID-19 pandemic.
