SPATIAL PLANNING

CONCEPT. ALPINE WIDE. PLANNING FOR PROTECTION. LAND USE. COORDINATE. REDUCE.

The ACB highlighted the need to build an Alpine-wide concept “Spatial planning for climate protection” to ensure a climate proof framework for spatial planning as one focus topic for further climate action at Alpine-wide level. On the one hand, to ensure that spatial planning as interface to other sectoral activities is considered in a common approach to integrate new challenges related to mitigation and adaptation policies and on the other hand, to ensure that smart spatial planning concepts can boost other activities.

Besides focusing on this concept, the ACB developed a pathway that aims at describing measures for reducing the need of individual car traffic.

Concept „Spatial planning for climate protection”

The task of spatial planning is to coordinate and balance different land uses in a way that respects ecological, economic and social needs. In regard to settlement and transport infrastructure, spatial planning also means planning for inhabitants, visitors and businesses to facilitate their activities in rational and efficient spatial structures and connections.

Further, climate change increases the spatial pressure on so-far unspoiled, natural high alpine areas. Regarding these challenges an Alpine wide concept that guides “Spatial planning for climate protection” will be developed.

Measures for reducing the need of individual car traffic

Spatial planning systems and strategies at transnational, national and regional level give a strong priority to climate change considerations, including mitigation and adaptation aspects. A crucial point in the discussion concerning the mitigation aspect is to foster spatial structures that reduce the need for individual car traffic. Pathway 2 consists of steps that describe spatial planning measures that are needed for this reduction.
