Referentin: DI. GHAZAL ETMINAN MSc
Moderation: Mag.a Monika Herbstrith-Lappe
In view of the increased pressure on the limited natural resources and the raising concern about climate changes, there is an increased need for trans-sectorial planning effort to support the decision-making process in achieving the transition to sustainable consumption and production patterns. Significant part of this effort is focused on ensuring the transition to clean energies that will help enabling sustainable development and combating climate change. Alongside this development, the accelerated urbanization worldwide indicates that in the near future up to 80% of final energy will be consumed in urban areas. This development shows the significance of the emerging urban transformation for the whole process of sustainable development, where the assurance of sustainable energy takes a central role. Thus, challenges of energy sustainability need to be solved increasingly at urban level beside the national one. Such challenges call additionally for the use of integrated concepts to tackle the increased complexity of the considered systems.
This lecture gives an introduction to continuing urbanization and the interrelations to climate change. Selected European Best Practice examples will be used to underpin the theoretical material in the form of implemented solutions and innovative, experimental takes on this topic.
The following questions will be addressed:
Why urban development requires integrative approaches?
What integrated urban development should thrive for
Introducing SDG 11 “Sustainable Cities and Communities”
What does mitigation and adaptation mean for cities?
KPIs and Monitoring for integrated climate neutral cities
