The paper identifies the literature that deals with adaptation to climate change in the transport sector by means of an extensive search, and presents a systematic review of the publications. Although it is frequently claimed that this socially and economically important sector is particularly vulnerable to climate change, there is comparatively little(More)
Globally, efforts are underway to reduce anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions and to adapt to climate change impacts at the local level. However, there is a poor understanding of the relationship between city strategies on climate change mitigation and adaptation and the relevant policies at national and European level. This paper describes a comparative(More)
The aim of this paper is to find major influencing factors of CO2 emissions from road traffic in urban areas. The approach of the study involved a statistical analysis on the basis of the formerly 23 urban districts of the German capital of Berlin. Correlation and regression analyses of empirical data from the settlement structure, the traffic structure and(More)
Cities are recognised as key players in global adaptation and mitigation efforts because the majority of people live in cities. However, in Europe, which is highly urbanized and one of the most advanced regions in terms of environmental policies, there is considerable diversity in the regional distribution, ambition and scope of climate change responses.(More)
In this study we demonstrate how to support policy option analysis for a problematic Social-Ecological System (SES) with the help of stakeholder participation. SES sustainability problems 1) are highly complex, 2) may lack reliable data, 3) encompass conflicting interests and 4) may require contradictory management interventions. Our approach uses a(More)
Fuzzy Cognitive Mapping (FCM) has substantially evolved since its development now being applied across a wide range of fields in science and technology. Continued difficulties in generating networks and weights through stakeholder interaction led the FCM community to 1) the increased use of statistical data to specify relations and weights, removing FCMs of(More)
Cities are places of high vulnerability to climate change due to their density of people, assets, and infrastructure and their high diversity of people of and from different socio-economic backgrounds, gender, ethnicity, and age, determining knowledge and knowledge access, support networks, and other assets important for adaptation. The City of New York-on(More)
