Abstract [en]

The number of climate adaptation plans in urban areas are increasing but the resources and knowledge to realize and implement these are lacking. Intergovernmental panel for climate change, IPCC, stresses the importance of the bottom-up approach of climate adaptation in order to ensure that direct actions are made in vulnerable areas. The bottom-up approach of climate adaptation has been an acknowledged method in developing countries and has since the beginning of the century gained interest in developed countries. According to Holstein climate adaptation has enabled another dimension of participation in the urban development. The implementation of Eco-system services and small scale projects enables direct participation of citizens in the development of public places. In the contemporary city, green making initiatives can be spotted all around the world. However, even if planners and other city authorities see the potential of place making activities to enhance the social life of the city and popularize places, the question still remain how these activities can be managed in order to ensure a built environment resilient to climate change. The purpose of the thesis is to study how citizens can participate in the process of climate adaptation. The research question aim to answer how inhabitants currently are participating and their motives for doing that, as well as which climate adaptation measures enables participation. The study is relevant in order to understand how planners can support citizens in order to enable immediately action to climate change as well as ensure socially attractive places. To answer the research questions a qualitative methodology has been deployed and two existing participatory and climate adaptation processes have been examined in Dordrecht, in the Netherlands and Christchurch in New Zealand. The result of the study end in a recommended framework for place making at urban areas vulnerable to flooding. The framework suggest that the impacts of flooding should be visible and that the place making initiatives should be managed by a standardized process. To ensure that climate adaptation measures are implemented a technical framework and design guideline should be easy accessible for the public. The validity of the framework is tested through the hypothetical implementation in the area Frihamnen which is the most vulnerable area to climate change in the city Gothenburg, in Sweden.
