Patricia A. Wilson, professor of community and regional planning, received a Fulbright Senior Specialist Award to give two day-long workshops in Lima, Peru, on participatory planning for disaster recovery at the invitation of the School of Architecture at the Universidad Nacional de Ingenieria in Lima. While the workshops were planned months in advance, they occurred just two weeks after a major earthquake hit the southern coast of Peru. As a result, Wilson was also interviewed on national television about the lessons from Katrina for disaster recovery and was asked to collaborate on recovery planning in the affected region.
