Interactions of Climate Mitigation and Adaptation in Cities: Synergies and trade-offs in Salon 5
13:30 - 15:00
Currently an increasing number of cities (Reckien et al., 2015, Grafakos et al., 2017) are moving towards addressing climate change adaptation and mitigation in an integrated manner. Local governments urgently seek support and guidance, but the interrelationships (synergies and conflicts) between Ad-Mit is a relatively recent topic of research. This session will stimulate discussions between policy-makers, practitioners and academics in order to elucidate current understanding and define the most pressing urban Ad-Mit interrelationships topics to be analysed in future research.
