The project focuses on policy synergies and conflicts, formal and informal institutional conditions that affect spatial planning from strategic comprehensive planning to concrete development plans when it comes to waterfront housing and sustainable transportation. The aim is to identify key drivers and measures that support more efficient climate transitions.
Research questions concern
The linking of goals and visions in planning
1. Drivers and barriers for change
2. Integrating climate change in spatial planning practice
3. How can more efficient transitions be supported. Case-studies are done in Karlstad, Sundsvall and Vellinge.
We also target the interaction between private and public actors in urban planning and the role of politics in facilitating transitions.
