Resilient Cities: Embracing Nature-Based Solutions for Smart Climate Adaptation

Nature Based Solutions offer a holistic response to the functionality of flood resilience

Founded in 2017, ClimaSens has been at the forefront of monitoring climate resilience in urban environments. They focus on connecting Green Infrastructure, also known as Nature-Based Solutions, to understand its role in supporting city adaptation. This valuable information drives critical decision-making for nature-based solution strategies, policies, climate resilience targets, and adaptation plans.

According to Joseph Glesta, Co-Founder and CEO at ClimaSens, “Nature-Based Solutions are the lungs of the city, vital for how cities function in the future.” He further likens a city to a living and breathing entity, where Natural Infrastructure Solutions act as organs to keep it alive and healthy.

“Nature Based Solutions are the lungs of the city, and its how we treat them as being vital for how cities function in the future.”

Nature-based solutions offer multiple benefits to cities, including flood resilience from stormwater runoff, micro-climate cooling, and the creation of beautiful urban green environments for citizens. For many urban green decision-makers, flood resilience and climate cooling are top priorities to enhance city health and resilience, mitigating systemic stresses from climate impacts.

ClimaSens chose to collaborate with Sensoterra due to their plug & play solution. Integrating various sensors for weather data, temperature, and satellite mapping allows them to assess the performance of assets across a city, leading to a comprehensive understanding of a place’s resilience.

Natural infrastructure solutions pose multiple benefits to cities, considering flood resilience from stormwater runoff, micro-climate cooling as well as providing beautiful urban green environments for its citizens. Flood resilience and climate cooling are major beneficial components to the health and resilience of a city and reducing the systemic stresses from climate impacts is top of the agenda for many urban green decision makers.

“We chose to work with Sensoterra because their solution is completely plug & play. By working with various sensors for weather data, temperature, and satellite mapping, we can aptly determine the performance of assets across a city and therefore understand the resilience of a place.”

 

Smart Data

ClimaSens monitors natural infrastructure systems in real-time. They provide insights to municipal decision-makers, fostering citizen engagement and awareness.

Prolonged drought reduces soil water permeability, increasing water runoff and flood risk during heavy rainfall. Sensoterra’s soil moisture data helps determine when irrigation is needed for Green Infrastructure sites.

“With Sensoterra soil moisture data we can determine when irrigation needs to take place to maintain the operational viability of these Green Infrastructure sites.”
