Resilient Cities under Climate Change - Facts, Concepts, Models and Reflections
The lecture will illuminate some key aspects of cities under climate change and the effects of green infrastructure and other nature-based solutions implemented to face heat and drought. There will be also shed light on the vulnerability of both urban residents and the ecosystem that should serve them, as both are living systems. This complex mutual social-ecological relationship is the core of the resilience of cities in the urban era of the 21st century. In the lecture, facts based on models will be set against prevailing urban ecological concepts and resulting novel theoretical considerations of urban ecosystems of the future will be brought to stage.
