Dr Xiaonan Wang presents, How to build resilience.io for sustainable urban energy and water systems, an Energy Seminar for The Energy Futures Lab at Imperial College, London on 2nd December 2016.
Xiaonan explains the work so far in it’s strategic context and introduces new development to the platform since the debut of the prototype earlier in 2016. The platform has been extended from it’s WASH sector prototype to include components to allow it to model the energy mix in the GAMA region and has been used to evaluate a water purification technology for it’s viability. The prototype has been developed to a software beta version with a graphical user interface and app launcher.
Stephen Passmore and Peter Head of The Ecological Sequestration Trust are joined by Bob Bishop of the International Centre for Earth Simulation to discuss our pioneering project creating Global to Local Scale, Human, Economic, Ecological, Systems Models for an Open Mic Session as part of the Thinkdif Disruptive Innovation Festival 2016, under the topics Systems Reset and Regenerative Cities.
We are pleased to announce the start of a new resilience.io project co-funded by the European Space Agency and in partnership with Rezatec, the leading satellite geo-analytics company. The objective will be to bring innovative Earth Observation data to support city-region resilience planning through resilience.io.
In June 2016, with the culmination of 18 months work by the the team from IIER, Imperial College, Future Earth Ltd and the Trust, we visited Accra to debut the WASH sector prototype of our modelling app.
In June 2016, with the culmination of 18 months work by the the team from IIER, Imperial College, Future Earth Ltd and the Trust, we visited Accra to conduct a series of workshops to present an overview of the WASH sector model prototype, it’s application in GAMA and the early use case results.
My journey to provide and scale support to city regions to meet Global Goals by 2030
In 2008 I was working in Arup, heading up their global planning business with a world class team of transport, environmental, urban and policy and economics experts. Before that I had worked in infrastructure design and delivery, particularly Public Private Partnerships, around the World and I was also an adviser to the Mayor of London Ken Livingstone on his Sustainable Development Commission and so I was very aware of the challenges of achieving improved city resilience.
Stephen Passmore and Scott Williams are at the conference to show how the resilience.io collaboration supports disaster risk reduction and the Sendai framework by helping investors to achieve the Global Goals and disaster risk reduction and enabling the shift from disaster response to disaster prevention in cities.
Partnering to help implement the Paris Agreement 2016 – 2030
The Ecological Sequestration Trust with ICL and IIER are creating an open-source systems platform, resilience.io that enables any city region to bring together data on human and ecological system resource flows and the economics of human well-being. The data can be used for collaborative decision making by communities, private and public sectors working together. The key to success of this approach is to mobilise open data and community sourced data using a data brokering framework. The building of the platform by a city region needs to be trusted and supported by independently verified data, bringing greater transparency and evidence based decision making.
