  1. 1. An analysis of the understanding of maintenance of nature-based solutions for urban stormwater management

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Emma Knapik; [2022]
    Keywords : Flood adaptation; resilience; sustainability; green infrastructure; uncertainty; Översvämnings anpassning; spänstighet; hållbarhet; osäkerhet;

    Abstract : Urban stormwater management is necessary to protect human life and society from the dangers and damages associated with flooding from extreme weather events. Conventional measures of stormwater management utilise grey infrastructure to convey runoff away from urban areas, but due to increasing urbanization, aging of urban infrastructure, climatic variability, and flooding due to extreme weather events, these measures are often no longer sufficient.

  2. 2. Exploring Urban Rainwater Harvesting in the city of Madrid applying GIS based MCDA expert tools

    University essay from KTH/Urbana och regionala studier

    Author : Silvia Börjesson Ballesteros; [2022]
    Keywords : Rainwater Harvesting Systems; Pond Harvesting Systems; Nature-based facilities; Climate Change Adaptation; MCDA; ArcGIS; Madrid; Spain; Sustainable water management solutions; Regnvattenuppsamlingssystem; naturbaserade anläggningar; klimatanpassning; urban resiliens; MCDA; ArcGIS; Madrid; Spanien; lösningar för hållbar vattenhantering;

    Abstract : Due to climate change, water resources’ scarcity and distribution variability have generated a growing interest in sustainable water management in recent years. In addition, the growing interest in implementing nature-based solutions for urban resilience leads to the development of decentralized water supply systems such as rainwater harvesting systems (RWHS) as a complementary resource to conventional centralized water supply systems.

  3. 3. How can Inflow & Infiltration be effectively and sustainably managed? : MCA as a tool for decision support in planning Inflow & Infiltration

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Erika Qvick; [2021]
    Keywords : Inflow and infiltration; stormwater; sewer system; sustainable urban water management; decision support; multicriteria analysis; Tillskottsvatten; dagvatten; avloppssystem; hållbar urban vattenhantering; beslutsstöd; multikriterieanalys;

    Abstract : Inflow and infiltration (I/I) water in the sewer network originates from groundwater, precipitation, seawater as well as over-leakage from drinking water pipes. It is the proportion of water in the sewer system that is not wastewater and causes problems both at the treatment plant as well as in the sewer network. READ MORE

  4. 4. GIS modeling of green roof ecosystem services to optimize green infrastructure placement and to map multifunctionality : a case study in Sydöstra staden, Uppsala, Sweden

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Urban and Rural Development

    Author : Olivier Rostang; [2021]
    Keywords : ecosystem services; GIS; green roofs; urban green infrastructure; sustainable development; multifunctionality; urban planning;

    Abstract : Green roofing has emerged as a viable option for developers and planners seeking to integrate ecosystem services into the built environment, while, at the same time, responding to the constraints posed by urban densification. Urban green infrastructure (UGI) has been placed at the core of sustainable urban planning enabling the integration of ecosystem services in urban development. READ MORE
