Stuck In Traffic: For Greater Miami To Become A Leading Startup Hub, Better Mobility Is A Must, Richard Florida, Steven Pedigo, Miami Urban Future Initiative, Florida International University

Miami Urban Future Initiative

"The world is abuzz with talk of a mobility revolution. This encompasses new modes of transportation, from ride sharing and electric cars to bike sharing, scooters, and even self-driving cars. But how much of that is hype, and how much is reality? In Greater Miami—as in much of rest of the country—the vast majority of people still depend on their cars to get around."

Miami After Hq2, Richard Florida, Steven Pedigo, Miami Urban Future Initiative, Florida International University

Miami Urban Future Initiative

With Amazon’s search for its second headquarters or “HQ2” finally over, it’s time for Greater Miami to get back to the business of building its own economy.

And, the region’s effort to come together to offer eight potential site locations across the three county mega-region—with the leadership of the Miami-Dade Beacon Council and support from the Greater Fort Lauderdale ...

Miami’S Housing Affordability Crisis, Richard Florida, Steven Pedigo, Miami Urban Future Initiative, Florida International University

Miami Urban Future Initiative

"Miami’s downtown skyline is dotted with construction cranes, as endless new condos and apartments are built throughout the city. But the new construction is misleading: Greater Miami—the tri-county metropolitan region spanning MiamiDade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties—faces a severe crisis of housing unaffordability that stems from the dual problem of high housing costs and low wages."

Toward A More Inclusive Region: Inequality And Poverty In Greater Miami, Richard Florida, Steven Pedigo, Miami Urban Future Initiative, Florida International University

Greater Miami has many things going for it: beautiful weather, a thriving economy, and a unique, international culture. Also known as the Miami metro, the tri-county region that spans Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties is the nation’s eighth-largest metro. With an economic output of $300 billion, it’s about the size of Singapore and Hong Kong.

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This thesis investigates the effectiveness of Low Impact Development Infrastructure (LIDI) and Green Infrastructure (GI) in reducing flooding resulting from heavy rainfall events and sea-level rise, and in improving stormwater quality in the City of Miami Beach (CMB). InfoSWMM was used to simulate the 5, 10, and 100-year, 24-hour storm events, total suspended solids (TSS), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), and chemical oxygen demand (COD) loadings, and in evaluating the potential of selected LIDI and GI solutions in North Shore neighborhood.

Post-development results revealed a decrease of 48%, 46%, and 39% in runoff, a decrease of 57%, 60%, and 62% in ...

Miami Urban Future Initiative

The Miami metro—which spans Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties—is an aspiring hub for entrepreneurship and innovation. While Miami has long been a breeding ground for small businesses, the economic value of these businesses has historically trailed behind that of leading tech hubs like the San Francisco Bay Area, Austin, Seattle, and Boston-Cambridge.

A Framework For Assessing Alternative Agro-Ecosystems: Finding Multi-Functional Solutions For Sustainable Urban Landscapes., Thais H. Thiesen Ms. Nov 2016

A Framework For Assessing Alternative Agro-Ecosystems: Finding Multi-Functional Solutions For Sustainable Urban Landscapes., Thais H. Thiesen Ms.

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Creating sustainable urban landscapes in light of growing population pressures requires interdisciplinary multi-functional solutions. Alternative agro-ecosystems described as food forests, permaculture gardens, and/or edible landscapes among others could offer potential ways to address the social, economic and ecological goals of various stakeholders simultaneously. The present research used a unique rubric, the Permaculture and Agro-ecosystems Sustainability Scorecard (PASS) that combines existing agricultural and landscape sustainability indicators in order to assess alternative agro-ecosystems. The rubric evaluates provisioning, regulating, supporting and cultural ecosystem services such as pollinator presence, biodiversity, pesticides and fertilizer use, carbon sequestration and human interactions. The PASS was used ...
