Operationalizing the Urban NEXUS

Tools

The Urban NEXUS is an approach to the design of sustainable urban development solutions. The approach guides stakeholders to identify and pursue possible synergies between sectors, jurisdictions, and technical domains. Given the wealth of global examples to learn from, this study developed a transferrable and action-oriented methodology to operationalize such practices of organizational and resource optimization in urban and metropolitan regions.The study defines the “Urban NEXUS Approach” and a project development cycle founded on successful real-world experiences, and it offers city makers a “how-to” framework for implementing integrated Urban NEXUS solutions.
