How can cities be built in a resilient and sustainable way?

In my reaserch I am focusing on urban storm water and flooding in cities. How can cities be built in a resilient and sustainable way? Due to the uncertainty of effects of climate changes in addition to the long lifetime for storm water solutions (up to 100 years), the solutions need to be adaptable to the future scenario with a long perspective. Furthermore, how can storm water solutions be a part of sustainable city development? I will try to look in to these issues during my five years at Lund University.

If you have any question you want to discuss with me or good ideas for research, you are very welcome to contact me. I would love to hear from you!
