Selected projects 2013 - 2020

Research & Policy Guidance / Recommending Actions

Resilience of Critical Infrastructure Systems, TU Vienna & UIS Vienna, Austria, 2020.

 - Research and policy advise for transformation of traditional institutions and decision making practices dealing with providing services from urban infrastructure systems. Policies guide towards new models of governance, which are able to adapt to change caused by CV19 regulations and climate change impacts by bridging and including diversity of perspectives and needs.

 

Practitioners Training / Recommending Actions

Open Participatory Design and Digital Tools for Inclusive & Resilient Development, PDC Conference, Manizales, Colombia, 2020.

Research & Policy Guidance / Implementing Changes  

Green Infrastructure Implementation Neulerchenfelderstrasse, Vienna, Austria, 2015 - 2019.

 - Creating practical solutions to climate change mitigation and adaptation planing that urban governance faces. Uncovering relations between influence, knowledge and centralities in the relevant environmental governance network, bringing out instruments to utilise influential actors for better project outcomes. 

 

Research & Policy Guidance / Implementing Changes

Green Infrastructure Implementation El Rio project, Tuscon, Arizona, 2015 - 2019.

 - This project researches the nature of the dispersal of knowledge and influence in Tuscon governance networks, in order to quantify it within the network terms, and therefore make possible discrepancies visible and repairable with the proposed policies. 

 

Effective diagnosis of implementation problems / Recommending Actions

Strategic network interventions for advancing Nature Based Solutions planning and implementation, City of Vienna, 2015 - 2019.

 - The project deals with the mobilising stakeholders for more effective and efficient NBS implementation in urban areas, by using governance networks analysis. It creates policy, tools and instruments that targets influential actors and enable them to engage the networks for the wished actions.

 

Effective diagnosis of implementation problems / Recommending Actions

Managing environmental knowledge in urban green infrastructure implementation processes, TU Vienna, 2018. - 2019.

 

 - This project uses Key Player metrics to evaluate the spread of the environmental knowledge in governance networks, and proposes the actions for strategic network interventions. 

 

Research & Policy Guidance

X - UGI: Predictive modelling in development of available space for green infrastructure due to autonomous mobility systems, TU Vienna & AIT Vienna, 2017.

 - Development of quantitative and spatially explicit integrated model for mapping the current urban fabric that conducts alternative land use scenarios for next decades, by modelling change of built up land to open green space and evaluating resulting effects. The model considers distribution, size and connectivity of UGI elements, as green network linking the urban with the peri-urban. Project evaluates conversion alternatives and identifies UGI priority areas.

 


Research & Project Implementation

Public Service Mobility Points, PubsMOP & TU Vienna, 2017.

It improves accessibility and socially inclusive mobility for disadvantaged social groups and prioritised areas.

 

Research & Policy Guidance / Recommending Actions

Prospects for ecosystem services provision in fragile strategic urban areas, Mira International Development Agency, 2018.

 - Research analyses actors with capacity to provide ecosystem services in urban areas: government, international partners and citizens. Policy recommendations for ES provision are targeted towards weak and fragmented governments, non-transparency and low assess to international funds and insufficient citizens involvement.

 

Effective diagnosis of implementation problems / Recommending Actions

Building resilience through urban commons: a policy recommendations for atomic shelter management, Croatian Development Agency, 2017.

 - Policy recommendations for developing urban commons on abandoned shelters are focused on assigning bundles of rights to local user groups in order to stimulate self-organising and long-term investments in active place management.

Urban Renewal Strategy & Project Implementation

Urban revival guidelines for the abandoned military quarters “Ivan Draskovic”, 2016.

 - Project comprises the extensive redevelopment of a former military quarters into flats, offices, retail, public services, parks and gardens. Strategy proposes a range of ways in which current development can enable transition to a more sustainable future, e.g., material, energy and water management, traffic design, and methods for increasing social- and biodiversity. A number of challenges, including technological and financial barriers, in the way to adopting mentioned principles are identified.

 


Urban Renewal Strategy & Project Implementation
