Climate Resilient Urban Nexus CHoices

CRUNCH is a multi-disciplinary project with an international consortium of project partners and cities addressing all three sectors of food, water and energy through the integrative FWE-Nexus approach. It aims to support local decision and policy makers, practitioners and civil society organizations by translating the key findings of a deep review of literature, knowledge and research evidence on the FWE-Nexus into the design of Urban Living Labs (ULL). The Miami proposal aims to create a carbon-neutral, data driven planning and scenario tool for integrated decision making using the Urban Living Lab (ULL) approach; identifying a data and mapping baseline for the city’s needs, developing the tool and framework, testing and analyzing the models using different carbon-neutral and reslilient scenarios.

Working across scales, policy questions, and by employing urban planning and design methods, the research focuses on working with communities and municipalities across four cities to enable the conceptualisation and visualisation of Urban Living Lab (ULL) focused on FEW-Nexus projects. The research aims to bring together design development, implementation and assessment of ULL’s within the creation of the support tool and assessment framework.
