Chapter 12: Capital systems for city preparedness: a framework
Restricted access

When we already journey through a continuous climate crisis spree, past overdue precautions sound almost futile. Yet we hope that motivated people quest after workable strategies while keeping actions focused on tangible results. For cities to reach acceptable outcomes during climate emergency preparedness, all stakeholder parties may prove useful. The governments at different levels, the relevant organizations, and groups of citizens with fractured or even irreconcilable points of view may need to act in complementary ways. Perhaps reaching natural levels of positive orchestration may require organized collective efforts, through communication, shared (or tradable) values, and purpose-driven actions. This chapter explores the adoption of composite functional cybernetic frameworks using common value systems, viable fractal organizations, and recursive indicators. We could refute the systems if at any moment these fail to 1) achieve significant results, 2) comply with qualitative expectations (such as simplicity in understanding to action, significant feedback metrics, accomplishment reliant, and scalable), and 3) absorb various unforeseeable scenarios and actants.
