In this week's lecture, Kian Goh speaks about her new book "Form and Flow: The Spatial Politics of Urban Resilience and Climate Justice" (MIT Press 2021).
She examines the politics around climate change response strategies in three cities and the mobilization of grassroots activists to fight the perceived injustices and oversights of these plans.
Goh explores initiatives such as Rebuild By Design in New York, the Giant Sea Wall masterplan in Jakarta, and Rotterdam Climate Proof, and highlights competing narratives, including community resiliency in Brooklyn and grassroots activism in the informal “kampungs” of Jakarta.
