Project

Analyzing case studies of social value creation of urban climate adaptation and resilience projects

Goal: This UREx SRN research theme focuses on two primary objectives:

(1) the conceptual development of a framework for understanding social value creation in the climate adaptation and resilience context and

(2) knowledge exchange between cities: sharing successful climate projects that have generated significant social values in addition to mitigating climate risks such as droughts, heat waves, urban flooding, coastal flooding, and sea level rise. The second objective is achieved through the development and publication of the Social Value of Adaptation and Resilience Case Study Database.

added an update
We've begun interviews with academics, engineers, city planners, resilience officers, etc. who desire to share interesting projects with us that demonstrate social value creation while also building resilience to extreme weather events like droughts, heat, and floods.
If you you know of interesting cases in major North American cities, please get in touch!
