Spatial organization, transport, and climate change: Comparing instruments of spatial planning and policy

  • Grazi, Fabio
  • van den Bergh, Jeroen C.J.M.

Approaching the analysis of climate policies from a spatial organization perspective is necessary for realizing both efficient and effective mitigation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In particular, it allows assessing the potential contribution of specific mechanisms of spatial organization and related spatial planning and policy to climate policy goals. So far, this spatial organization angle of climate policy has hardly received attention in the literature. The main sector significantly contributing to GHG emissions and sensitive to spatial organization and planning is urban transport. A qualitative evaluation of the available spatial organization policy options is provided, on the basis of four standard 'E criteria' and a decomposition of CO2 emissions.
