Adapdation strategies for urban climate change considering socio-economic factors

Impacts of urban climate such as increased temperatures are perceived differently by the population depending on e.g. their health background, age or economic status.

Urban climate change may be mitigated through adaptation strategies in urban planning. As the impact of urban climate varies throughout an urban area, so does the socio-economic situation of the residents.

Urban Systems aims to develop adaptation strategies to climate change that consider the varying socio-economic background of people within the metropolitan area of Hamburg.
