What does Urban sustainability stand for?

Main means & practices:

UAE

World cities average

Urban & Spatial link

Soft power enclave projects

High profile Clean Energy and Culture projects

• Social recognition in international society

• A guest to acquire post-oil statehood

• International identity and status independent of the role as

hydrocarbon producers

Maintaining & Enhancing the Existing Core Assets

Tapping onto leadership

psychology and agency

Eliminating Gaps in Strategy

“Soft power enclave projects mentality”

Transforming Gaps into major components of Strategic Plans

• Initiate & maintain Spillovers to onshore society

• Opt for “experiments” that are able to spread locally

• Reduce tensions between the enclaves’ mission and onshore norms

• Balance between commercial - cultural - educational

• Replicability = Aim at exporting

the Attempt to Adopt


Proposals

“Rapid urbanisation is considered to be one of the

biggest human settlement challenges in human history,

accompanied by profound social, economic, and

environmental transformations (Bai et al 2014)”

Urban ideas must be invented and re-invented on the ground,

becoming both useful and responsive to the needs of city-builders & users

• Develop and advance thought on urban typologies and complex systems more

holistically as well as balance regional and global scales with knowledge from local

experience and place-based solutions

• To create sustainability on the ground, we must connect local issues, tradition and

behaviour to global patterns.

• To develop the idea of “Sustainable cities” we need prioritise the areas of greatest need.

Policy/ practice need a human scale & connection to the lived experience

Tools

Example of two of

technology levers: The

chart is used to compare the

cost efficiency of a

technology saving CO2

compared to wall insulation.

Wall insulation is used as a

benchmark in this illustration

and set at the 0% mark in

the middle of the diagram.

Technologies in light blue –

to the right of the zero

benchmark line – save more

kilograms of CO2 per euro

than wall insulation. In this

situation there are 10

technologies that save CO2

more cheaply than wall

insulation.
