Resilient Greenway: A Participatory Planning Framework, Chingwen Cheng, Mohsen Garshasby Jan 2016

Resilient Greenway: A Participatory Planning Framework, Chingwen Cheng, Mohsen Garshasby

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Greenway as a network of “nature’s super infrastructure”—as part of green infrastructure that includes both man-made and natural ecological networks— providing ecological, recreational, and cultural values (Fabos, 1995) is a complex and dynamic social-ecological system. The structures and functions of greenways are shaped and formed by the interactions between natural and human systems. Under climate change impacts with intensified and more frequent extreme weathers, many greenway systems that are particularly in already natural disaster-prone areas would be likely to experience more aggravated social and ecological impacts. A resilient greenway thus is a greenway system that processes an adaptive ...


Greenways As Resilient Infrastructure: The Brooklyn Greenway Case Study, Tricia Martin Jan 2016

Greenways As Resilient Infrastructure: The Brooklyn Greenway Case Study, Tricia Martin

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Greenways as resilient infrastructure illuminates the recent global progress in redefining and reimagining the possibilities for greenway planning and design. New greenways are highly ambitious as they are planned and designed to address a multiplicity of environmental and social challenges (Searns, R. M, 1995). Urban areas all over the world are experiencing temperature increases, severe rain events (and longer droughts), and sea-level rise while simultaneously impacted by population growth in cities (Cheng, Chingwen, et al., 2013). These environmental and social forces add strain to our urban areas and city leaders are looking for multi-objective strategies that can mitigate these strains ...


Ri Sea Grant, Ri Coastal Resources Center And Uri Landscape Architecture Department Collaborate On Resilient Coastal Greenways, Richard Sheridan Jan 2016

Ri Sea Grant, Ri Coastal Resources Center And Uri Landscape Architecture Department Collaborate On Resilient Coastal Greenways, Richard Sheridan

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

The State of Rhode Island, the smallest of the fifty states in the United States, is 37 miles wide and 47 miles long, yet has 400 miles of coastline (CRMC, 2012). Twenty-one of its thirty-nine communities have coastal property. Like many coastal communities, this ocean state faces significant ecological, financial and safety issues due to climate change and sea level rise (CRMC, 2015a; Rodin, 2014). Various partnerships between local and federal government agencies and the private sector have arisen to help avert a disaster (Sasaki Associates, 2014).

This paper will speak to a unique newly created relationship and how that ...


Greenways As Resilient Global Landscape Solutions, Charles A. Fink Jan 2016

Greenways As Resilient Global Landscape Solutions, Charles A. Fink

Proceedings of the Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning

Greenways historically have been highly valued for their benefit to human health and wellness as linear recreational corridors and as a product of interconnected walking and bicycling trail networks. With the threat of accelerating global climate change, greenways offer a more important and strategic landscape for the protection of coastal and shoreline communities, mitigating the impacts associated with urban flooding, and providing landscapes that protect the health, safety and welfare for millions of coastal and shoreline residents around the world.

Each day millions of residents worldwide are exposed to the impacts resulting from global climate change, primarily from urban flooding ...
