Spatial Planning

Spatial planning is one sphere in which such coherence is being sought. It plays an important role in climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction, particularly as it offers tools to proactively and preventively reduce risk.

To develop the full potential of spatial planning, it is the key to understand the determinants of climate risk – hazard, exposure and vulnerability – and how physical climate and environmental changes interact with the human socio-economic system.
