Exploring Curriculum for the Integration of Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change: The Case... This article explores the urban planning curriculum of the three selected planning schools in India. They are the School of Planning and Architecture (SPA), New Delhi; Department of City and Regional Planning, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur; and the Faculty of Planning, CEPT University, Ahmedabad. It uses content analysis to understand the deepening of research, skill formation and the possible change in pedagogy due to growing concerns about climate change (CC) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) in the urban area. The concerned programme coordinators and heads of the departments have also been consulted to find out the general approach to integrating CC and DRR knowledge into their planning curricula. An account of research outreach of faculty members, student dissertations and institutional publication in the CC and DRR has also been presented to illustrate research outreach with the community. It has been found that these schools need to deepen further their engagement with the domain of CC and DRR. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Environment and Urbanization ASIA SAGE

Abstract

This article explores the urban planning curriculum of the three selected planning schools in India. They are the School of Planning and Architecture (SPA), New Delhi; Department of City and Regional Planning, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur; and the Faculty of Planning, CEPT University, Ahmedabad. It uses content analysis to understand the deepening of research, skill formation and the possible change in pedagogy due to growing concerns about climate change (CC) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) in the urban area. The concerned programme coordinators and heads of the departments have also been consulted to find out the general approach to integrating CC and DRR knowledge into their planning curricula. An account of research outreach of faculty members, student dissertations and institutional publication in the CC and DRR has also been presented to illustrate research outreach with the community. It has been found that these schools need to deepen further their engagement with the domain of CC and DRR.
