Only Social and political participation
We are interested in how the consequences of climate change affect existing demographic and social developments and how this affects planning and decision-making processes at the lowest levels (districts, municipalities, small regions). We analyse the resilience of eco-social systems and design improvement scenarios taking into account different population groups. In doing so, we place special emphasis on endangered structures, such as supply, maintenance of infrastructure and socially disadvantaged groups.
