Dr Leonardo Nogueira de Moraes

Leonardo Nogueira de Moraes is a Research Fellow in Disaster Resilience at RMIT’s Centre for Urban Research. He is part of the NHRA project on Natural Hazards and Resilience in Complex Urban Systems and his contribution is focused on “assessing and mapping vulnerabilities and resilience within urban systems at local scales”. His research programme explores how formal and informal planning processes inform the building of resilience and vulnerability to disasters and climate change. From social-ecological and complex adaptive systems’ perspectives, he seeks to understand the roles of regulation, self-organisation and connectivity in resilience building and global-local interplays.
