Opdracht beschrijving

The urban environment is changing, which confronts us with new challenges to solve; waterflooding, heat stress, and noise pollution. The city of Amsterdam also faces these issues. How do we keep the city livable and healthy? Specifically in Knowledge Mile Park, we aim to improve those particular issues by taking appropriate measures.

Knowledge Mile Park is one of the main traffic routes into and out of the city, used by many cars and cyclists, and green areas are sparse. Various types of users visit the area: companies, residents, schools, passers-by, café and restaurant visitors. Each area or square might face different challenges. One area is perhaps more affected by heat stress, while another area must cope with water flooding or noise pollution. Urban green space can influence the temperature and urban climate. How can we effectively use urban green space for climate adaptation?

De onderzoeksvraag is:

What are the possibilities of using functional green space as a measure for climate adaptation? How can this be used effectively and which areas are most suitable for these measures?

Mogelijke deelvragen zijn:

  • Which areas within KMP are dealing with water flooding? What kind of (green) measures are suitable for this problem? What are the possibilities to implement functional green spaces?
  • Which areas within KMP are dealing with heat stress? Which (green) measures are suitable for this problem? What kind of functional green will have the most effect?
  • Which areas within KMP are dealing with noise pollution? Is the use of functional green a suitable solution? What kind of functional green will have the most effect?
