  • Design-led Urban Food=-Energy-Water Management Innovation,

    2021.03

     View Summary

    Urban communities are particularly vulnerable to the future demand of food, water and energy, and this is further acerbated by the onset of climate change. A solution needs to be found for a FEW nexus. Granted by Belmont Forum's Sustainable Urbanisation Global Initiative, this internationally diverse project sees urban agriculture as a key facilitator of the Nexus, needing water and energy to become productive. Working directly with living labs in some of the most vulnerable communities in the partner cities, the team aims to co-design new food futures with stakeholders that leave them less vulnerable to forces disturbing the nexus. The lessons learned from these stakeholder workshops will be shared outside the team, so that lessons learned locally can be applied globally.

  • Barriers and enabling factors affecting satisfaction and safety perception with use of bicycle roads in Seoul, South Korea

    Sharma B., Nam H., Yan W., Kim H.

    International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health)  16 ( 5 )  2019.03

     View Summary

    © 2019 by the authors. Licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland. Cycling has proven to be an important strategy in decreasing the risk of non-communicable diseases. This study aimed to discover barriers and enabling factors influencing satisfaction and safety perceptions towards the use of bicycle roads in the Seoul metropolitan area, South Korea. A cross-sectional survey of 190 youth and adult individuals was conducted. Sex, age, purpose of bicycle use, perceived safety, availability of facilities, road gradient, road width, and traffic on the bicycle road were associated with cycling regularity. Multivariate regression analysis showed that the sufficiency of bicycle parking space, moderate slope, and enough bicycle signs were significant enabling factors for satisfaction with the use of bicycle roads. Narrow bicycle roads were found to be a barrier to satisfaction with the use of bicycle roads. Moderate slope, enough bicycle signs, and enough maintenance facilities around bike roads were found to be enabling factors in the perceived safety of the use of bicycle roads, whereas traffic on the side of the bicycle road was found to be a barrier to perceived safety. Based on these findings,

  • Developing a design-led approach for the food-energy-water nexus in cities

    Yan W., Roggema R.

    Urban Planning (Urban Planning)  4 ( 1 ) 123 - 138 2019

    Joint Work, Except for reviews

     View Summary

    © 2019 by the author; licensee Cogitatio (Lisbon, Portugal). Urban communities are particularly vulnerable to the future demand for food, energy and water, and this vulnerability is further exacerbated by the onset of climate change at local. Solutions need to be found in urban spaces. This article based around urban design practice sees urban agriculture as a key facilitator of nexus thinking, needing water and energy to be productive. Working directly with Urban Living Labs, the project team will co-design new food futures through the moveable nexus, a participatory design support platform to mobilize natural and social resources by integrating multi-disciplinary knowledge and technology. The moveable nexus is co-developed incrementally through a series of design workshops moving around living labs with the engagement of stakeholders. The methodology and the platform will be shared outside the teams so that the knowledge can be mobilized locally and globally.

  • Status of Climate Change Adaptation in Northeast Asian Region

    Yan W., Galloway W., Kang J.

    Springer Climate (Springer Climate)     69 - 96 2019

    ISSN  23520698

     View Summary

    © 2019, Springer Nature Switzerland AG. Differences in the political systems and the economic conditions of each country in the northeast region indeed lead to diversity in terms of climate change vulnerabilities. These differences cast strong shadows on the types and scale of adaptation plans and measures started in the region. Keeping context specificity in mind, this chapter summarizes the perspective of climate change impacts, vulnerabilities of key sectors and society, and status of adaptation measures including development of national adaptation strategy and action plans in China, Japan, Korea, and Mongolia. Further it compares commonalities and gaps amongst the countries. Apart from a separate introduction for each nation, it also gives a comprehensive discussion focusing on the eight indicators described in the framework chapter. This chapter presents a comprehensive picture of the latest adaptation measures in four countries which will deepen understanding on current adaptation efforts and gaps for enhancing adaptation actions in each country.

  • Measuring Spatial Accessibility to Pick-Up Service Considering Differentiated Supply and Demand: A Case in Hangzhou, China

    Lin L., Han H., Yan W., Nakayama S., Shu X.

    Sustainability (Switzerland) (Sustainability (Switzerland))  11 ( 12 )  2019

     View Summary

    © 2019 by the authors. In recent years, customer pick-up at collection and delivery points has become a popular alternative to traditional home delivery, which is under great pressure. However, current service of pick-up facilities has seldom been geographically evaluated despite its general uneven distribution and diverse needs. In this paper, in order to interpret the differentiation in customers' service demands toward reception alternatives and in facilities' service excludability in different built environments, a two-step floating catchment area (2SFCA) method is improved to measure customers' spatial accessibility to pick-up facilities, providing a methodology to evaluate the match relation between the differentiated supply and demand of pick-up service. A case study of widespread automated parcel stations (APSs) is conducted in Hangzhou, China and correlative factors to residents' accessibility are discussed. From the results, residents' accessibility to pick-up service shows significant spatial unevenness and social inequity in the study area, which is found to correlate most to residences' maintenance management. As well-managed, gated communities generally hold effective access to exclusive services, most open communities and self-built, single houses are in need of improvement due to inadequate service stemming from a high aging rate, lack of property management, and low service availability of nonexclusive facilities in open areas.

  • Trust as a proxy indicator for intrinsic quality of Volunteered Geographic Information in biodiversity monitoring programs

    Vahidi H., Klinkenberg B., Yan W.

    GIScience and Remote Sensing (GIScience and Remote Sensing)  55 ( 4 ) 502 - 538 2018.07

    Joint Work, Except for reviews,  ISSN  15481603

     View Summary

    © 2017 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group. In this article, we present a fuzzy model for intrinsic quality assessment of Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) on species occurrences obtained by Citizen Science (CS) biodiversity monitoring programs. The proposed VGI quality assurance approach evaluates the thematic and positional quality of the crowdsourced biodiversity observation in terms of the trustworthiness of the observation by combining three indicators of consistency with habitat, consistency with surroundings, and reputation of contributor, that characterize the geographical and social aspects of trust in VGI. To evaluate the performance and usability of the proposed approach for evaluating the trustworthiness of crowdsourced observations and detecting thematic and positional errors in crowdsourced observations, the developed approach was applied to the crowdsourced observations on Acer macrophyllum collected through the CS biodiversity monitoring projects of E-Flora BC and iNaturalist. The result of a conformity test at the optimal acceptance threshold (sensitivity = 0.99, specificity = 0.8, and Cohen’s kappa = 0.79), the achieved area und
