SUDPLAN workshop on Climate Change and Urban Planning

In 11-12 October 2012 the SUDPLAN tool was presented on a workshop in Wuppertal, Germany. Some 40 professionals involved in urban planning were given three keynote lectures addressing the challenges of urban planning, the reliability of downscaled climate scenarios and human aspects of using tools for environmental decisions.

With this perspective as a background, the SUDPLAN system and the results worked out by the four project pilots were presented. The second day offered four live demonstrations where the participants were able to consult and discuss the SUDPLAN tool and even upload own data for downscaling of future conditions in their home cities.

The SUDPLAN tool aims at supporting decisions in urban planning, taking into consideration the expected effects of climate change. The presentations and videos shown at the workshop can be downloaded here below.
