Urban InVEST: Designing resilient cities by nature

The Platform

1997 Chevy Tahoe 2 Door On 99 Chevy Tahoe Heater Wiring Diagram Urban InVEST is a data and modeling platform that provides information and analytics to developers, lenders, municipal governments, consultants, and advocacy groups. Urban InVEST features spatially explicit biophysical and socio-economic models that enable users to quantify and map the impacts of alternative urban designs on multiple urban ecosystem services (e.g., urban water management, heat island mitigation, mental health benefits), showing the benefits and costs to communities by socioeconomic status and vulnerability.

Building on Success

65 Chevy Nova Wiring Diagram Urban InVEST builds on the Natural Capital Project’s existing free and open-source Integrated Valuation of Ecosystem Services and Tradeoffs (InVEST) platform. InVEST is used in planning by governments worldwide, with users in over 185 countries.

The Demand

Trailer Plug Wiring Diagram 6 Way The demand for Urban InVEST is high and growing rapidly, motivated by an urgent need to mitigate risks from climate change, pollution, and unplanned development. Cities are looking to nature-based solutions to address these challenges, but leaders lack tools and approaches that integrate urban ecosystem services in city design and spatial planning. The demand for Urban InVEST is coming from:

  • city leaders interested in evaluating alternative urban growth scenarios
  • advocates for greater investments in parks and open space
  • municipal governments seeking to plan green infrastructure and its co-benefits
  • multi-lateral development banks interested in making more strategic and resilient loans

Early Development

1G Alternator And Regulator Wiring Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums We are partnering with municipal governments and city leaders across the United States and in Asia-Pacific to co-develop Urban InVEST. The first applications are supporting urban ecological assessments in major Chinese cities (including Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Dalian, Guangzhou) and the evaluation of co-benefits of green infrastructure in Paris, France, and multiple US cities, including Minneapolis-St Paul and the San Francisco Bay Area. 06 Zx6R Wiring Harnessintroduces Urban InVEST and describes its application in three case studies (Shenzhen, China; Paris, France; and Minneapolis, USA).
 

The Models

These include: pollination, climate change mitigation (carbon storage and sequestration), scenic quality, coastal hazard protection, habitat quality, habitat risk assessment, and recreation.
