- Theoretical argument has been put well. However, many similar tools and systems have already been developed and used for vulnerability and hazard mapping. Moreover, under the resilient cities initiatives many projects are already underway in Brazil such as 100 Resilient Cities and WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities, working in Rio de Janeiro, Porto Alegre and Brasília.
- It would be great if you could compare MOVE to other similar assets - like the Urban Adaptation Assessment, or resilience.io. or CRAFT. Others are working on this and have made good progress. If yours is so different from theirs, please spell out how and why. The Judges think you are describing a project-based assessment, though you speak of city scale. The project scale is important, because at the city scale, you are comparing cities to other cities, but at the project scale you are comparing assets within a city geography. The real problem here is the black box - too complicated to be open source? Maybe at first that is true, but over time, this should be made available to all. The Judges know that open source tools are misinterpreted even by the experts, but only well-off cities or cities with development financial institute support will be able to afford MOVE, which is not a resilient way to go.
