Description Waterfront Urban Areas as an Urban Infrastructure: Challenges, Retrofitting and its Methods. The case of Baku, Azerbaijan
Abstract The effects of climate change are impacting the cities and their infrastructure. The concerns about the cities infrastructure in terms of resilience are increasing. The increasing complexity of disasters also impacts the urban infrastructure of the coastal zones, which are predominantly characterized by high density of land use and population. In addition to the risks associated to coastal cities (irregularities of precipitation, cyclic changing of water level, etc.), the Baku’s coastal zone urban infrastructure is also dealing with the particular risks related to the patterns of urban and industrial development on the Caspian Sea. In the present context of challenges, the different methods of urban retrofitting have their role to play in reducing and managing the range of hazards and uncertainties by using the Natural Capital Approach. The inquiries highlight the importance of natural and physical protective interventions which should be integrated into the built environment. Based on Disaster Risk Reduction and Adaptation models such as Nature-based and Engineering-based solutions, the aim of the presentation is to expose the different methods of intervention as a sustainable solution for the possible vulnerabilities scenarios for waterfront urban infrastructure of the city of Baku. Throughout the presentation, the objective is also to highlight the importance of the continuous process of resilience in a city, which should methodically integrate into the design, construction and operation processes.
