Designing sustainable and resilient cities

  1. 1. systems principlesfor designing sustainable and resilient cities Anupam Saraph, PhD, Innovation, Strategy and Leadership Mentor
  2. 2. (cc) 2011, Anupam Saraph2 one in every seven cities in the world is in India half of these were created post- independence and are less than 64 years old not one of them makes it to any list of cities worth living in indian cities
  3. 3. (cc) 2011, Anupam Saraph3 $20 billion spent through national urban renewal mission from 2005 not one of the cities with these funds can still make it to any list of cities worth living in indian cities
  4. 4. (cc) 2011, Anupam Saraph4 systems comprise of stakeholders engaged in a relationship for a common purpose systems methods focus on the purpose for which stakeholders engage with each other systems methods are inclusive systems thinking
  5. 5. (cc) 2011, Anupam Saraph5 social systems are inherently insensitive to most policy changes that people choose in an effort to alter the behavior of systems social systems draw attention to the very points at which an attempt to intervene will fail characteristic ONE
  6. 6. (cc) 2011, Anupam Saraph6
  7. 7. (cc) 2011, Anupam Saraph7 social systems seem to have a few sensitive influence points through which behavior can be changed when a high-influence policy is identified, the chances are great that a person guided by intuition and judgment will alter the system in the wrong direction characteristic TWO
  8. 8. (cc) 2011, Anupam Saraph8
  9. 9. (cc) 2011, Anupam Saraph9 social systems exhibit a conflict between short-term and long-term consequences of a policy change a policy that produces improvement in the short run is usually one that degrades a system in the long run characteristic THREE
