Guiding Urban Concepts and Climate Change in Germany’s Urban Planning Practice

This study looks at climate change in the context of Germany’s urban development. Key question is how cities can cope with increasing climate-related challenges as part of their urban planning and development response. To this end the study describes existing guiding urban concepts in Germany and analyses them with the aim to assess to what extent sustainability and resilience aspects are already being considered. On the basis of this analysis the study provides suggestions on how climate mitigation and adaptation can be integrated more strongly in existing guiding urban concepts. The study has been produced by the global project “Cities Fit for Climate Change” and is meant to showcase approaches to climate-friendly urban development from Germany for possible replication efforts in other regional contexts.

Mobilizing the co-benefits of climate change mitigation

This working paper argues that the urgency of bold and timely climate action coupled with the social and economic opportunities of renewable energies mean that the co-benefits of climate change mitigation will have to be mobilised further to accelerate the global transition towards renewable energies and help limit the dangerous consequences of global warming. The paper elaborates an interest-focused approach to mobilising co-benefits and argues that co-benefit assessments can be important drivers of ambitious and effective climate policy.
