The primary research aim of our proposal is the exploration of the Water-Health-Resilience Nexus in changing urban environments in the UK and Brazil. Building urban resilience in flood-prone areas requires the development of adaptive capacities and socio-hydrological approaches capable of assisting this process by investigating the interplay between hydrological and human related dynamics. Thus, traditional disaster risk reduction methods are being enhanced in order to provide a more effective framework for delivering healthy urban environments. The areas we are planning to explore through this project reflect the interdisciplinary nature of our network. Hence, drawing from our expertise and expanding to our areas of growing research interest we aspire to explore the following thematic units:*New methods for collection, curation and visualisation of water-and-health related data to promote urban resilience in UK and Brazilian cities;*Content and applicability of socio-hydrological methods to enhance urban health in UK and Brazilian cities;*Citizen engagement and participatory governance to promote Water-and-Health security in UK and Brazilian Metropolitan Areas.
