Smart & Connected: Management of Thermal Extremes

BY ZOÉ HAMSTEAD
@ VOL 19 ON MAR 14, 2018

"What is the connective tissue that we need—both technologically and socially—to create adaptive strategies that are greater than the sum of our parts?"

In Smart & Connected from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19, Assistant Professor in the University at Buffalo Department of Urban & Regional Planning, Zoé Hamstead, describes a linked practice-research endeavor that addresses how cities manage heat and cold events. Localized differences in exposure and coping capacity impact the effectiveness of public agencies, organizations and individuals to respond to episodic thermal events. Since thermal vulnerability is shaped by complex interactions across environmental, social and technological variability, addressing this challenge will require integration of traditionally siloed disciplinary knowledge and agency management strategies. As part of a National Science Foundation-funded Smart & Connected Communities (S&CC) planning grant, collaborators in Buffalo/Erie County, New York and Tempe/Maricopa County, Arizona are working together to build capacity for integrating research with practice for managing thermal extremes.

"We can do it. We can change the world."

In Project Rainfall from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19, CEO of NeuWater & Associates, LLC, Rita Hubbard-Robinson, talks about the development of an urban aquaponics farm and farmer’s market on Buffalo's East Side.

Project Rainfall's priorities are to improve the health of a disenfranchised community through access to fresh food and education.
