Adapting cities to climate induced risks - a coordinated approach
84 percent of the population of Sweden lives in cities. Long-term urban planning can enable us to lessen the negative effects of climate change, or take advantage of the opportunities it presents, and so create attractive, secure, healthy and sustainable cities.
The purpose of the project is to develop methods and knowledge to reduce the risks and effects of extreme weather.
The urban district in the Gothenburg area is Frihamnen which is going to be analysed from a sustainability perspective.
