Towards 'Resilient Cities' - Harmonisation of Spatial Planning Information as One Step Along the Way

  1. 1. Towards ‘Resilient Cities’ Harmonisation of Spatial Planning Information as One Step Along the WayCTP 2011, Santander, SpainManfred Schrenk, Julia Neuschmid, Daniela PattiCentral European Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Urbanism, Transport, Environment and Information Society<br />
  2. 2. Grand Challenges<br />By 2050 two-thirds of the world’s population will live in urban areas (UN Habitat, 2006)<br />What about...world‘s resources…climate change…energy…pressure on cities…land use…? <br />
  3. 3. The RoleofSpatialPlanning<br />Givesgeographical expression to the economic, social, cultural and ecological policies of society. <br />is at the same time a scientific discipline, an administrative technique and a policy developed as an interdisciplinary and comprehensive approach<br />directed towards a balanced regional development and the physical organisation of space according to an overall strategy. <br />strongly influences society on all levels as <br />it addresses the environment where people live and work, the location of social and economic activities and the way in which processedresourcesareexploited.<br /> (Council of Europe, 1983)<br />

  12. 12. numerous (in)dependent actors
  13. 13. numerous, unforeseeable possibilities
  14. 14. hidden agendas
  15. 15. open system
  16. 16. 2 opposed interests
  17. 17. each with 16 actors (limited possib.)

  24. 24. Resilient Cities<br />can ADAPT to changes, grand challenges and can balance ecosystem and human functions.<br />Resilience is “the capacity of a system to survive, adapt, and grow in the face of unforeseen changes, even catastrophic incidents” (Holling, 2001).<br />Resilience in cities is a DYNAMIC PROCESS covering implementation and constant evaluation over time.<br />

  26. 26. Resilient Cities<br /><ul><li>Among requirements for resilience are innovation, foresight, adaptive multi-layered governance, effective partnership and networks among all actors involved in spatial planning processes AND

  28. 28. THE SPATIAL PLANNING RECIPE?<br />„Perfect<br />World“<br />Planning: an easy task?<br />
  29. 29. Planning processes and their outputs are highly diverse across Europe and the world.<br />Plans are taylor-made attempts to improve given situations<br />The results of planning depends highly on the PLANNING PROCESS<br />There are very different approaches and understandings of urban and spatial planning(design driven, technically/legally driven, real-estate-driven, participatory approach …)<br />HarmonisationofPlanning?<br />

  32. 32. What is more important in planning processes? The process itself with the involvement of stakeholders that generates certain dynamics or just the final results, "the plan"?<br />Is spatial planning a technical science where each step can be exactly described and confronted with the same problem different planners generate the same result?<br />Unique, creative process with unpredictable outcomes?<br />Spatial planning is never finished ("planning cycle“)<br />Always one key question: How/where to get reliable data / information?<br />Characteristicsofplanningprocesses<br />
  33. 33. The past years have led to the development of spatial data infrastructures and more harmonised spatial data which can positively effect spatial planning processes. <br />Spatial planning / Stakeholders can use interoperable information that is provided through spatial data infrastructures to <br />monitor ongoing developments, <br />to integrate different stakeholders and themes, and <br />to make decision processes more transparent. <br />SDI helps spatial planning to receive more up-to-date information than ever. <br />As a consequence spatial planning can detect new developments and changes, analyse them according to existing plans and visions, and<br />is able to steer the spatial order to better improve resilient cities.<br />Planning & SDI?<br />
