    S.m.a.r.t STREET a roadmap for a climate adaptive urban environment

    S.m.a.r.t. STREET concept is a multidisciplinary design approach to transform cities, street by street, block by block, in order to make our living environment attractive and sustainable for now and in the future. Climate change is a global development, but solutions are to be found in local initiatives and measures. We believe that the city with all its streets (being the veins of the city) offers opportunities to improve the climate, or at least enable us to respond to climate change more effectively. Streets form a mighty network. There are thousands of them, and they are continually changing. If we can apply a small change one thousand times, then radical change will take place. A revolution by evolution.

      Towards circular urban water cycles: Resource recovery based urban water transport systems

      The design requirements of contemporary engineered urban water cycle have been historically based on public health, comfort, and physical safety. This approach has led to the linear arrangement of the urban water cycle, in which little or even no attention has been paid to the resource recovery concept and closing urban cycles. The emerging need for closing urban water cycles requires a paradigm shift aiming at the reduced drinking water use and generation of concentrated and small wastewater flows which are fit for optimal resource recovery and reuse. This research presents the development and validation of an integrated model of drinking and wastewater transport systems, that is run according to stochastic flow patterns. This integrated model will be applied as an input to forthcoming simulations to predict the changes in drinking and wastewater hydraulic and quality parameters which result from the implemented resource recovery and water conservation strategies.

        The integration of critical facilities and infrastructure hardening and longer term resiliency strategies in the New York City and New Jersey region

        The tidally influenced NY/NJ Hudson River is a coastline environment and a coastal watershed that supports one of the densest inter-connected infrastructure assets in the US. The extensive transportation infrastructure that supports the daily mobility of millions of daily commuters and drives the national economy is extremely vulnerable to natural hazards. Hurricane Sandy in 2012 disrupted not only the transportation and grid infrastructure, it triggered an array of cascading impacts. Both New Jersey (NJ) and New York (NY) have adopted an approach to harden their critical assets, in conjunction with longer term planning efforts with several billion dollars in capital expenses. Multi-purpose levees, flood gates and tunnel closure systems are being designed and installed to safeguard daily commuters and New York’s global business interests: an extremely complex retrofit and technical puzzle.

          Climate change-related hazards on coastal water systems and infrastructure: a review

          We searched, retrieved, classified and reviewed papers on climate-change hazards and impacts on coastal water systems and relevant infrastructure, and adaptation measures. For this, we  used Scopus, Thompson-Reuters Web of Science, PubMed, Google and other relevant databases. Understanding and quantifying the risk is the main challenge that occurs, according to the literature, and is the first step for the development of an effective framework to address real-world cases.

            Strategic policy on the use of recycled condensate water as an alternative water source in Indonesian shopping centres

            Water is one of the most essential earth elements for living. The increasing number of in populationcomes together with the increasing amount with the water demand. Nevertheless, it is not supported by decent water sources on earth. Condensate water as a residual product of air conditioner (AC) has been known as one of alternative water source in urban area. Air conditioners itself are widely used in various public places, especially shopping center. Therefore, a policy needs to be made in orderto regulate and to push the implementation of this alternative option of water source in shopping center. The method used is a descriptive method by conducting literature review and gathering secondary data. The policy regulates the recycling process, implementation of the using, monitoring, and rewards and punishment. By implementing this policy, hopefully a sustainable water source can be found and keep a responsible consumption in daily life.
