Planning for Climate Change: Political Climate and Policy Changes


Banner 10th CITTA Conference



Theme of the conference


Over the last decades, climate change has evolved from an issue of interest to some natural scientists primarily, into one of the top priorities on the global policy agenda. Yet, domestic political institutions and policy-maker's normative commitments continue to play a key role in countries’ decisions to mitigate, to plan for and to adapt to the effects of climate change. Therefore, the extent to which the international political climate frames the nature of national policies for climate change is still very much on the agenda, but with new nuances and facets. The CITTA 10th Annual Conference on Planning Research tackles this timely issue by discussing the challenges that communities and governments face when it comes to planning for climate change.
