1 TRANSITIONING TOWARD URBAN RESILIENCE AND SUSTAINABILITY WP7 Integrated Transition Strategies TURAS External Review Brussels 24 July 2013

2 TRANSITIONING TOWARD URBAN RESILIENCE AND SUSTAINABILITY ITS Context Setting  Professional Culture  Disciplinary Approach  Thematical focus  Explicit objectives  Implicit objectives  Strategic objectives/key terms  Planning strategy on urban-regional scale : Architecture and urban-regional Planning : Spatial Planning and Development : Planning Theory and Methodology : WP Synergies, Project Synthesis : Integrated Planning, Knowledge Transfer : transition, urban, resilience, sustainability, integration

3 TRANSITIONING TOWARD URBAN RESILIENCE AND SUSTAINABILITY objectives  prepare integrated transition approach for combining the outcomes of one or more of the WP 2-6 framework / Matrix: problem definitions, data needed, actors etc. methodology for integration  prepare integrated transition strategy (ITS) for each participating TURaS city further aspects of urban resilience developed and tested in other TURaS cities demonstration and assessment in terms of impact and transferability  prepare transferable final ITS framework / methodology for non-TURAS cities modular structure based on TURaS outcomes user-friendliness, accessibility milestones & deliverables Trans. Strategy Workshop Circulation of (city) ITS  Integrated Transition Report Publication of (city) ITS  Final Transition Guidelines task … Year 4 Year 5 … WP7 content & objectives

4 TRANSITIONING TOWARD URBAN RESILIENCE AND SUSTAINABILITY milestones & deliverables Transition Strategy Workshop Circulation of (city) ITS  Integrated Transition Report Publication of (city) ITS  Final Transition Guidelines ◦ Draft of integrated ( ≙ urban) transition strategy milestones & deliverables Transition Strategy Workshop Circulation of (city) ITS  Integrated Transition Report Publication of (city) ITS  Final Transition Guidelines task ◦ Project Stakeholder Analysis objectives ◦ Methodology for „common terminology“ ◦ Literature review & contribution to „urban resilience theory“ Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year ◦ Methodology for „integration“ ◦ WP 7 Risk Analysis  assess status and risks of WP7 within project knowledge gaps vs. holistic approach project terminology capacities for WP7 (per partner / WP)  conceptualise “urban resilience” as a strategic objective for WP7 (planning) resilience vs. sustainability different sectorial conceptualisations vs. integration in “overall” urban strategy operationalisability vs. uncertainty/complexity  conceptualise “transition strategy” in context of “urban resilience” strategic planning vs. bottom-up & flexibility transition management towards urban resilience Key steps „black box“ WP7 content adaptation

5 TRANSITIONING TOWARD URBAN RESILIENCE AND SUSTAINABILITY Capacity Inventory in Excel  Uneven distribution of ressources WP7 status & risk analysis WP7 working paper on website WP7 part of Project Periodic Report M1-18  Topical (sectorial) selection vs. holistic (urban) overall project goal  Lack of „time framing“ of transitions aimed for in WP 2-6  Very heterogeneous, wide & flexible use of „resilience“ through all WPs  Sectorial professional language vs. Common terminology  Lack of examples of operationalisable definitions/conceptualisations of „urban resilience“ (literature & practice)  Lack of indicators for/of resilience (literature & project‘s research capacity)  Tension between need/expectation for „ready-to-use“ working definitions and evolutionary bottom-up structure of project

7 TRANSITIONING TOWARD URBAN RESILIENCE AND SUSTAINABILITY Common Terminology Methodology – Key Terms to Glossary  Collection of potential key terms: Kick-off working sheets, DoW, SCMeetings  Pre-selection (and reduction) of key terms on people level: partner (individual) survey (questionnaire)  TURAS Operational Vocabulary  Selection of key terms on WP level: WP leader survey (questionnaire) in collaboration with task leaders  WP key terms  Collocation of working groups (lead by WPs) & allocation of key terms  Definition (& differentiation) of key terms: (interdisciplinary) dialogues  Turas expert groups (Wiki)  Edition & publication for partners  TURAS Glossary (ready for public site)

8 TRANSITIONING TOWARD URBAN RESILIENCE AND SUSTAINABILITY Common Terminology WP7 key terms on TURAS Wiki  Example for Wiki use  Conceptual frame to substantiate & detail the terms for WP context  Open to discussion

9 TRANSITIONING TOWARD URBAN RESILIENCE AND SUSTAINABILITY  What means resilience in the disciplinary context of planning (vs. sustainability)?  What means URBAN resilience (versus e.g. ecological or psychological resilience)?  How can urban resilience be operationalised (integration, evaluation etc.)? Conceptualising Urban Resilience  What means resilience in the disciplinary context of planning (vs. sustainability)?  What means URBAN resilience (versus e.g. ecological or psychological resilience)?  How can urban resilience be operationalised (integration, evaluation etc.)?
