Summary

Floods, heatwaves, wildfires and other extreme weather events are the order of the day. Their frequency, duration and intensity are accelerating as a result of climate change. In the front line, local authorities must lead the ecological transition to mitigate the causes and adapt to them. Indeed, given the scope of their responsibilities in terms of regional planning, economic development, mobility, housing, etc., 15% of greenhouse gas emissions (or even 50% indirectly) are attributable to their decisions. Their involvement is therefore decisive in achieving carbon neutrality and adapting to climate change.

Planning can and must encourage the development of plural and differentiated "ecological transition pathways", taking into account specific territorial features. But what is a pathway? Is contemporary planning up to the challenge? How can we move towards more "dynamic" and "adaptive" planning of territories in order to respond to ecological temporalities?

This book provides contextual elements, examples and methodologies of pathways tested in territories, to shed light on territorial planning with regard to the ecological transition and initiate reflection on these questions.

It is aimed at local authorities and land-use planners, and aims to bring the academic world closer to public policy professionals.
