About the Project

According to United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC), climate change presents the single biggest threat to sustainable development around the world. In particular, with the extensive urbanisation the impacts from extreme cascading events such as floods and landslides will become more and more severe.

In the past decades, although a multi-hazard approach has been postulated in a number of disaster reduction policies, single-hazard approaches to assessing hazard potential, in which hazards are treated as isolated and independent phenomena, are still commonplace. Their prevalence, however, can distort management priorities, increase vulnerability to other spatially relevant hazards or underestimate risk.

This PhD project will particularly focus on modelling the multi-hydrometeorological hazards (floods, landslides and debris flow) and provide useful research outcomes (e.g., multi-hazard risk maps) for hazard risk management. Satellite remote sensing technology will also be adopted to build a multi-hazard inventory map.

Funding Notes

This project is NOT FUNDED, although Departmental/University scholarships are available for applicants who can demonstrate strong evidence of research potential.
