TSU Researchers visited Manila in September

Prof David Banister, Dr Tim Schwanen and Dr Anna Plyushteva from TSU, and Dr Nihan Akyelken from the Department for Continuing Education, visited Manila in September as part of the 'Sustainable Cities and Resilient Transport' project funded by the British Council Newton Fund. The researchers collected data on the impact of flood risk on the everyday mobility of households in low-income areas, with a specific focus on gender. The project partners from the University of Oxford, De La Salle University Manila, and University College London came together to discuss preliminary findings, at the Transport Sustainability and Resilience Research Forum hosted by De La Salle University on 14 September. Insights from the project were also shared with the Transport team of the Asian Development Bank.
