Cities Leading Climate Action - Collaborative Planning in Practice

November 06, 2018 | Posted byPublié par : CIP | Climate Change, WTPD 2018

Acknowledging that cities are called to be leaders in climate action this presentation presents the research that served as the basis of the book “Cities Leading Climate Action - Urban Policy and Planning”. Specifically, it endeavors to understand how cities are responding to climate change’s causes and impacts within the remit of local governments. Drawing on in-depth case study research on Vancouver, Portland, Glasgow and Dublin, Dr. Dekker examined the policy development processes employed by urban policy makers to respond to climate change, looking specifically at the utilization of collaborative planning.
