Urban water metabolism information for planning water sensitive city-regions

Abstract Climate change and growing populations will stretch water resources in many city-regions globally, and urbanisation will continue to degrade water quality and upset natural hydrological flows. These pressures call for alternative urban water management approaches with improved connection with…

A behavioral rebound effect

Abstract Pro-environmental behaviors are an important avenue for mitigating environmental impacts. Technological improvements are also a vital tool for reducing environmental damage from consumption. However, their benefits are partially offset by the direct rebound effect, whereby a consumer rationally responds…

Economic value of Urban Heat Island (UHI) mitigation: a case study.

Introduction The UHI effect can be mitigated by applying elements of WSUD, for example, lining large trees along suburban streets, irrigating public open space with fit-for-purpose water, and restoring wetlands. Increasingly, there are more investments in urban greening. These investments…

Assessment of non-market benefits of WSUD for a residential development: a case study

Introduction Water sensitive urban design (WSUD) is an approach for planning and designing urban environments that are sensitive to water sustainability, resilience, and environmental protection. Elements of WSUD investments, such as constructed wetlands and living streams, could provide many intangible…

A metabolism perspective on alternative urban water servicing options using water mass balance

Abstract Urban areas will need to pursue new water servicing options to ensure local supply security. Decisions about how best to employ them are not straightforward due to multiple considerations and the potential for problem shifting among them. We hypothesise…
