The investigation, connecting processes between the natural, the socio-institutional, and the built environment, is innovative in its multidisciplinary approach, and will deliver the following innovative interconnected project results:

Innovation Question/Objective
Life cycle assessment of nutrient and water recovery to promote food production in cities. RQ1/RO1
A geo-referenced land-use model to optimize urban and peri-urban food production in terms of nutrients, water, and energy, considering urban morphology and determining life cycle impacts. RQ1/RO1
A spatial disaggregation approach based on land-use and/or local climate zone information to increase the resolution of emissions. RQ2/RO2
A spatially-temporally resolved framework for quantitative analysis and simulation of green infrastructures to determine the direct and indirect effects on the urban and regional atmosphere. RQ2/RO2
A method for quantifying the contribution of green infrastructures to the carbon footprint of the city. RQ2/RO2
An integrated systemic approach combining life cycle analysis and atmospheric modeling. RQ3/RO3
A guide to aid city planners and policy makers determine how the growth in urban food production and green spaces can be managed to enhance urban sustainability and avoid unintended consequences. RQ3/RO3
