CLIMATE ADAPTATION APP
The climate adaptation app gives urban designers, engineers or others insight in feasible measures for a project with a specific climate adaptation goal. The app will generate a selection of feasible climate adaptation measures in less than a minute. If for instance, an urban development in a flood plain is to be prepared for river flooding, the app will rank feasible measures based on the local conditions and the user’s input.
DEIXE SUA PEGADA ECOLÓGICA
Com o app Deixe sua Pegada você verifica o tamanho da sua pegada ecológica.O que é Pegada Ecológica?
“Pegada ecológica refere-se à quantidade de a quantidade de recursos naturais (como água, petróleo e terras férteis) que seria necessária para sustentar as gerações atuais, tendo em conta todos os recursos materiais e energéticos, gastos por uma determinada população (wikipédia).”

Surviving the Anthropocene

http://www.bigpicturescience.org:80/episodes/Surviving_the_Anthropocene

World is hot, and getting hotter. But higher temperatures aren’t the only impact our species is having on mother Earth. Urbanization, deforestation, and dumping millions of tons of plastic into the oceans … these are all ways in which humans are leaving their mark.

So are we still in the Holocene, the geological epoch that started a mere 11,000 years ago at the end of the last ice age? Some say we’ve moved on to the age of man – the Anthropocene.

It’s the dawn of an era, but can we survive this new phase in the history of our planet?

https://www.adb.org/publications/urban-climate-change-resilience-synopsis

There is no single action that will make a city resilient to the shocks and stresses brought on by climate change. Urban Climate Change Resilience: A Synopsis provides a concise introduction to the core principles and qualities of urban climate change resilience (UCCR), including lessons from applying this approach across South and Southeast Asian cities. This synopsis is intended for ADB project officers, consultants, and partner cities who are interested in building UCCR, and for those working with ADB’s Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund.
