Experience three demos of data tools developed by students in Stanford’s Sustainable Urban Systems Initiative for local governments and communities in the Bay Area to achieve sustainability, resilience, and equity goals. (1) Estimate and mitigate future direct and indirect socioeconomic losses for low-lying communities in the County of San Mateo. (2) Examine the viability in affordable housing in the City of East Palo Alto through the development of accessory dwelling units, and how it may be impacted by zoning changes. (3) See how the Sustainable Development Goals have been localized in the City of San Jose through time-bound, measurable decarbonization goals with multi-stakeholder partnerships.
