Abstract

In the poster it is presented the Case Study of Duran, Ecuador, a coastal city of 235.000 inhabitants which are exposed to annual flooding events that increase the risk of vector-borne and other infectious diseases. Duran is an in-dustrial satellite city of Guayaquil, the largest city of Ecuador, with a rapid population growth that lead to a large area of informal settle-ments on the city. Applying an integrated climate risk management and urban health focus, it is assessed the Duran strategies for reducing vulnerability to flooding, landslides and heat waves through a collabo-rative inter-sectoral approach among the health, urban, and scientific actors. Stakeholder engagement between municipality and researchers are providing evidence and building knowledge to implement “low re-gret” adaptation strategies and community active participation.
