The Sustainable Urban Stormwater Management course is taught by leading local and international practitioners, including Prof Herbert Dreiseitl, Director of Liveable Cities Lab at Ramboll Group; and Mr Tan Nguan Sen, PUB’s Chief Sustainability Officer. In addition, we have planned for an exclusive dialogue with Mr Henk Ovink, Special Envoy for International Water Affairs at Kingdom of the Netherlands, United Nations.
The course will cover the key issues in stormwater and catchment management, such as drainage planning and operations, managing flood risk and improving flood resilience. The first part of the course starts with an overview of Singapore’s approach to sustainable urban stormwater management, and this will be followed by a deeper look by international trainers at how other global regions/ cities such as Hong Kong, UK and Australia adapt for flood resilience.
The second part of the course will look at PUB’s Active Beautiful and Clean Waters (ABC Waters) programme, describing the vision and strategic objectives of adoption by the public, via a People, Private, Public (3P) partnership, with site visits to iconic projects such as the Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park and Waterways Ridges at Punggol (a public housing project). The course then concludes with a review of the global adoption of water sensitive urban design, and how different cities have applied a holistic integration of landscape and drainage design.
