The UREx SRN focuses on integrating social, ecological, and technical systems to devise, analyze, and support urban infrastructure decisions in the face of climate uncertainty. It leverages a network of nine, diverse cities, a network of 65 experts, a holistic conceptual framework, inclusive, participatory approaches, a workflow, education program and an evaluation plan that produces results and continually learning. The central question we are addressing is: How do social, ecological and technological systems (SETS) domains interact to generate vulnerability or resilience to climate-related extreme events, and how can urban SETS dynamics be guided along more resilient, equitable and sustainable trajectories?
