R2Q –
Resource planning for urban districts

Practical planning instruments for the efficient management of resources

Cities place high demands on land, water, materials and energy resources. It is therefore important to achieve a sustainable use of resources in cities. Residential districts are manageable planning units and particularly suitable for change and participation.

Objectives and procedure
The project will develop a planning instrument enabling the systematic, efficient and method-oriented management of resources in urban districts. Planning and evaluation tools, construction and process engineering as well as ideas for participation procedures for resource management are brought together in a practice-oriented “building set”. This gives planning authorities, for example, access to improved simulation approaches for flood events and methods to analyze and evaluate multifunctional land uses.

Expected results and transfer
By involving other cities, the project specifically supports transfer into practice. The modular structure of the project results allows them to be transferred to other municipalities.
