Climate Resilient Cities: Resilient Building Design and Planning

Report Includes
  • Summary of innovative and exciting new climate management and mitigation strategies that threaten to change the way we plan our cities and live in them. Leveraging novel technologies and design features, this new category of climate mitigation bridges livability, community development, and safety/functionality. The report can also be used as a guide for local governments to better understand the concepts and consequences of climate change; how climate change consequences contribute to urban vulnerabilities; and what is being done by city governments around the world to actively engage in learning, capacity building, and capital investment programs for building sustainable, resilient communities.
  • Insight into three key principles of resilience building: robustness (strong design), redundancy (building extra capacity into systems to act as fail-safe networks) and resourcefulness (citizen empowerment), and discusses how entrepreneurs, city planners, and technologists can develop and implement climate-safe solutions that also make cities more livable and sustainable.
  • Emphasis on 1) projections for more intense and frequent extreme weather events need to be integrated with standard city planning efforts; 2) architectural protocols such as LEED and district-planning paradigms such as EcoDistricts encourage patterns of resource use and community dynamics that increase resilience to the impacts of climate change; and where applicable 3) integration of renewable energy generation and storage technologies that are modular and distributed, providing resilience to climate shocks.
