Three of the future large societal challenges are
climate change, loss of biodiversity and urbanization. If we are able to
take advantage of ecosystem services in and in the vicinity of urban
areas, there is great potential to reduce the negative impact of these
challenges. In step 3, C/O City wants to utilize our tools and collected
data for planning and managing for urban ecosystem services. Step 3
contains seven workpackages, which together optimizes towards resilient,
multi- functional urban nature that is highly capable of delivering the
ecosystem services necessary for future cities.
first two steps of the project, C/O City have accumulated knowledge,
developed tools and identified additional requirements needed to
practically implement ecosystem services in urban planning and
-development, both in Sweden and internationally. In Step 3, we will
utilize this toolkit for multi-functional, resilient urban nature that
meet a variety of urban challenges. Quantifications and valuation are in
great demand for decision makers, but accuracy and assessments need to
be substantiated and verified to be credible. We want to 1) develop the
tools that are not fully developed in steg 2, 2) test the toolkit sharp
in concrete pilot projects and 3) make data and tools for planning and
development of urban ecosystem services widely available.
With the knowledge that has been accumulated in C/O City, there is
an advantage in terms of time and knowledge, not least from an
international perspective. Along with the project ́s strong
constellation with representatives from key stakeholders in the urban
planning process, the project shows both credibility and effectiveness.
The project is carried out at the Division of Applied Acoustics in the research group Vibroacoustics.
