The research and development phase of the project has shown that there is great potential for climate adaptation in competition procedures. In the ongoing project phase, the implementation phase, urban planning/landscape planning competitions were therefore examined for opportunities to integrate climate adaptation. As part of this, a guide for urban planning/landscape planning competitions was created for all those involved in the competition. The brochure provides support in strengthening climate adaptation in competition procedures and planning, including various assessment criteria and working aids. In addition to questions on how green and blue infrastructure measures can be taken into account in designs and competition procedures and what responsibility the competition participants have for this, the guide also provides information on the ideal time for integration. You can find it here.

The project aims to draw up and develop potential integrated solutions to climate change adaptation, climate protection and infill development in cities, and to test how they can be implemented in planning.
To this end, field test sites are to be selected in the City of Munich. This city takes on a specific model character given its growth and its high level of urban density, with its highly-diverse neighbourhood structures and highly-dynamic development. Methods for the development of a multifunctional, networked green infrastructure within dense urban structures will be developed during the project. Simulations are to document the effectiveness of a green infrastructure for the micro-climate and the indoor climate, as well as the urban water budget; the extent to which this information can be put to use in decision-making in planning processes will then be studied in field tests.
The results of qualitative tests on how the population handles heat stress and the potential impact of infill development will complement the quantitative results of the climate simulations.
Which factors and instruments are used for the implementation of planning processes for green infrastructure?
Which regulatory functions does green infrastructure provide for climate adaption and climate protection?
How can area requirements for green infrastructure and the demand for residential space be integrated from the perspective of different stakeholders?
Which obstacles could affect the implementation of green infrastructure measures and how could these obstacles be reduced?
